watch old tv footage of the real Lester Bangs then watch P.S. Hoffmans Lester Bangs, it is fucking EXACT. If you have the A.F. DVD and watch the making of, it has footage of the real Bangs, Fucking EXACT!
: Ben Fong-Torres is indeed a real person, a real editor from Rolling Stone's glory years, as is Charles Perry, the effeminate-looking gentleman with the cigarette holder, as is Jann Wenner, who actually makes a cameo appearance in "Almost Famous." Look for him in the cab that William almost dives into.
: Other real people from "Almost Famous" include Lester Bangs and Penny Lane.
