    Sad. I figured Pete Townshend would die before him. The Who are one of my favorites as well.

    "The Ox" will be missed. The Who were my favorite band ever & I had plans to see them this summer.

    Damn, I'm just shocked by this. Fuck.

    Very sad. A true original in one of the all time great bands.

    Still talk about seeing them in the Seattle Kingdome over 20 years ago with The Clash. What a concert! Could FEEL the music practically knocking me backwards! That, and jumping out of the way of some guy heaving his guts onto the Kingdome floor! RIP Thunderfingers!

    Loudest band of all time.

    John was the first musician to use Marshall amplifiers, and put them together in "Stacks"...he will be sorely missed in the Rock world.

    He and Keith are together today.

    I just posted this over at the Steve Hoffman board:

    What a huge loss.

    I have been a Who fan for nearly twenty years. If Townshend was the brains of the group, Daltrey was its guts and Keith was its heart, then John was its soul and its muscle, the immovable object that kept the irresistible forces of the other three from flying off the stage into orbit. The Who is unthinkable without him.

    He was certainly one of the all-time greatest bass players, and probably the absolute best rock bassist. He was also a songwriter that would have dominated any group that did not also include Pete Townshend.

    He will be missed.

    John is a large part of the reason I play the bass. I am profoundly sad at his passing.

    This is a shocker. At least we knew George Harrison was ill and could prepare for his passing. This is just out of left field.

    Freaky how similar this is to Darryl Kyle's death just days ago.

    Entwistle was an innovator and an indispensable part of one of the greatest bands ever. He will be missed. I'm going to go play some Who tunes now, and crank 'em up LOUD.

    R.I.P., John

    This is such a great loss. John Entwistle will be sorely missed. An essential part of one of the greatest rock bands in history.
    Excuse me while I crank Live at Leeds...

    Gazing at you, I get the heat,
    Following you, I climb the mountain,
    I get excitement at your feet;
    Right behind you, I see the millions,
    On you, I see the glory,
    From you, I get opinions,
    From you, I get the story....."
