Who Bassist John Entwistle Dead at 57





In news that saddened the entire music world, founding Who member John
Entwistle was found dead in his hotel room in Las Vegas yesterday, June 27. The
Who bassist was 57. The band was due to kick off their North American tour
tomorrow night in the City of Sin. Half of the members of the seminal mod-rock act have
now passed away, as drummer extraordinaire Keith Moon passed away almost 14
years ago. The reason for Entwistle's passing is still unknown, but it is already
thought to be of natural causes. The Vegas stop on the tour has been canceled, but the status
of the rest of the tour is still up in the air. Needless to say, this is a very sad bit of news,
indeed...
