It's actually an homage thing -- it's the band Stillwater in poses imitating the ABB on the cover of At Fillmore East. It's one of a number of references to the Brothers in the film. I'm not sure how you would get a poster of the AFE cover, but I'm sure it's been done.

There actually was a large poster available of the FE cover, but a slightly different pose - the guys are lookins dead serious instead of laughing and smiling. I had a copy ages ago, and gave it to a friend in college when I left for the summer.

Last year, I saw a framed copy of the poster at local shop that sells photos, posters and other memorabilia. The price? $600.

Somebody shoot me...

Well, if it makes you feel any better, everybody used to own that kind of stuff -- you know, seems like everybody of a certain age used to have a Mickey Mantle rookie card in mint condition. If they all still had them, they wouldn't be worth hundreds of dollars in the first place. I'm sure you'd still rather have the thing, but you probably wouldn't have the $600. I think that picture is on the cover of The Fillmore Concerts, by the way.
