One of the greatest, most understated rock-n-rollers passed away today in Las Vegas from a heart attack. He was 57.

I remember at least 15 years ago when Entwhistle was on the Stern show. Howard managed to get him to play bass while Stern sang Who Parody songs, including "Behind One Eye" (howard as Sammy Davis Jr) and some parody of "My Generation."

The Who were about to start a US tour tomorrow.

Here's to Boris the Spider.

Damn, that stinks. I saw him at BB Kings in New York just over a year ago and it was a great show.

He'll be missed. :(

wow, i'm in shock. i went to see them in 97 during the quadrophenia tour and it was an awesome show.



Marge: Mr. Scorpio, this house is almost too good for us. I keep expecting to get the bums rush.
Scorpio: We don't have bums in our town, Marge, and if we did, they wouldn't rush, they'd be allowed to go at their own pace.

o_O... well, that's shitty. Didn't really get into the Who, but I do like some of their songs (yes, even "Eminence Front"...). Didn't know he had any health issues... then again, I said the same for Darryl Kile.

I was at work listening to the radio, they were playing "Magic Bus". After the song was over, the DJ announced that John Entwhistle died from a heart attack. It damn near knocked me out of my chair

By the way,"Eminence Front" rules.

This really sucks. I was gonna try to get tickets to see The Who and Robert Plant this summer. Even if they still do the tour, I don't think I'd go. They're already missing Keith Moon, without Entwhistle, whats the point. I'll go listen to Live at Leeds instead.

I'm happy that I got to see them at RFK in 89. It wasn't the real WHO, but 75% was good enough for me.

The Who announced today that they will tour after all, starting next week in Hollywood.

I don't agree with this touring thing. It's just Townshend and Daltrey now...that's not the Who. The Who are all four guys. You don't see McCartney and Ringo teaming up for a tour and billing themselves as the Beatles.

RIP John. Best bassist ever.

I agree with that point. But here's why I think this is a good exception.

1) Ox dies RIGHT BEFORE the tour starts.

2) His family agrees with the tour continuing.

3) It can be now "A tribute tour," where the emotions are fresh, not a "planned tribute that might ring of phoniness or opportunism."
