Yoshiaki Manabe ( lead guitarist for The Pillows ) is actually a notable Fender Mustang player, which Azusa Nakano plays. Although not a big find, but still something.

And more commonly known yes the K-ON names are based off of The Pillows and P-Model
just felt like I should mention that.

I guess it's safe to say that Kakifly drew huge inspiration for his manga from The Beatles and that KyoAni continued on that thought by adding all those little details. That's some impressive detail there.

The Beatles also made a lot of Food references such...

Glass Onion

Honey Pie

Strawberry Fields Forever

Savory Truffle

A Taste of Honey

Wild Honey Pie


Norwegian Wood (Wine)

Yesterday (Originally tilted "Scrambled Eggs")

Also The Beatles told a reporter that their favorite food is Honey and their favorite drink is Tea

Ichigo Parfait ga Tomaranai

Gohan wa Okazu

Curry Nochi Rice

Tokimeki Sugar

Not bad for a show about cute girls doing practically nothing but stuff their faces, drink tea and occasionally play some music.

Comparison




Is it me or does John Entwistle (Bass player for The Who) Remind you alot like Mio & her kind of style. Possible Influence? He Also uses a Fender "Frankenstein" Precision Bass one of his Notable instruments not in this video, but in other songs/videos he does. Like Mio Hes cool and calm, and at the end of this video he kinda protects his bass as the others destroys there instruments his appearance also resembles Mio with his Dark hair and blue grayish eyes!


watch the bass solo
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pete Townshend originated the Windmill which Yui Mimics
trivia fact: Pete struck the guitar with such force he drove the guitar's tremolo bar through his hand and needed hospital treatment, also Notable instruments he used was a Gibson Les Paul

The Who Pete Townshend's windmill!



Yui Uses this move in there concerts not just this episode

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ritsu's biggest inspiration and favorite drummer is the erratic drummer from the classic rock band The Who, Keith Moon. While Moon was much more on the lunatic realm of the spectrum, it is clear that Ritsu takes a lot of cues from her idol, just short of utterly destroying her drum kit on stage.
Ritsu shows admiration for Keith Moon who is the drummer of the band The Who. Both there styles are very VERY similar both in performance & personality (This video covers most of it, for example both dont like practicing & have wild drum styles. ONLY KEITH CAN PLAY DRUMS FOR THE WHO, and ONLY RITSU CAN PLAY DRUMS FOR HTT )

Just watch this and you will see
"He is one of the best drummers the world has ever seen!"

They tend to look at Keith the drummer during performance, like the HTT band!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is nothing relevant maybe by conquincidence, but Roger Daltrey Lead singer for The Who is the only one in the band that has Blond hair (has thickest eyebrows out of all of them) during his time with the Who in 1965...... just like Mugi ? (^ Watch the Videos I posted above even the Moon video and you will see his thick eyebrows/blond hair/blue eyes >;D


The HTT band is like a mix of The Beatles and The Who

That doesn't match up at all.
I would say she is cool, but calm? If anything even slightly scary is mentioned, she screams.

this is somehow related to k-on, i think, since it's about yukiko horiguchi.

remember that LN called "kokoro connect"? the LN that was rumored to be drawn by yukiko(albeit she was using an alias) it looks like it's getting an anime(or it's just the drama cd)..

and yeah, it pretty much looks like k-on..XDD it's about body-switching
