Anachronisms 

There is a Bell Telephone push button phone shown in Jimi's hotel room in late September 1966. Push button phones did not become widespread in the UK until the 1980s and there certainly would not be an American made phone present in 1966.

Even in England, marijuana was virtually never referred to in the late 60s as "weed." It was either "pot" or "grass." There is other modern slang in the dialogue as well; e.g., "hella good."

Linda Keith lends Jimi Hendrix a white electric guitar. In real life this was a Fender Stratocaster. The guitar in the movie is a Fender Stratocaster, but not a 1960s model.

When Jimi plays sergeant pepper at the Saville Theatre, he is seen playing a Gibson Flying V instead of a right handed Fender Stratocaster. The V also featured different graphics and lacked a tremolo that was on the one he played later in his career.

Factual errors 

Kathy Etchingham was never beaten with a telephone, as depicted in one scene. According to the real Kathy Etchingham it was "completely made up."
When Radio Caroline is playing in one scene, the song playing is "Train To Nowhere" by Savoy Brown. This wasn't issued until 1969.
