    There's a guitar world interview where Jeff notes that scene, and finishes with 'the bloody bastard' and laughs.

    There's no one or two or three inspirations - it's a pastiche of everything ridiculous about guitarists and 70/80s rock bands, with some real life incidents re-imagined and ridiculed. It's why every rock band and player from that era is claimed to have inspired it. Nigel Tufnel "being" Jeff Beck is based on nothing more than they have a passing resemblance. Has Jeff Beck ever worn a green spandex all in one?
