    You do know there's a segment in the documentary where Eric Clapton's guitar strap broke as he was beginning to play the guitar intro to a song and Robbie Robertson is seen on camera, noticing the oh shirt! moment and tries to buy Clapton some time by playing the intro himself until Slow hand could recover or have a roadie hand him another guitar to play. Initially, Robertson and the rest of the Band wanted Scorsece to edit or remove the scene in post-production but Martin argued that incidents like this occur during rock concerts and screw-ups or mishaps happen even during great, memorable concerts or during documentaries so editing it out would hurt the movie's continuity or cohesiveness.

    The concert actually occured on Thanksgiving Day, 1976 at the old Winterland in San Francisco, 2 years before the Sex Pistols played their last ever concert at the Winterland. At the film's intro beginning, viewers see legendary West Coast concert promoter Bill Graham walking on the side walks adjacent to the arena interacting, admonishing, and sort of talking to a long line of fans lined up to see the Band's last concert after being on the road, in various forms or another, for 26 years.
