John Entwistle, Bass Player for the Who, Dies at 57. ‘Onstage Mr. Entwistle was the Who’s still point, barely moving anything beyond his fingers and calmly looking on while Mr. Daltrey strutted and swung his microphone and Mr. Townshend jumped around and windmilled through chords. Mr. Entwistle also wrote songs for the Who, such as “My Wife” and “Boris the Spider,” that revealed a sly and sometimes macabre sense of humor.’ NY Times [I like to think he’s joined Keith Moon playing in Jehovah’s favorite choir with Joplin, Morrison, Hendrix, Jerry Garcia, Lennon and Harrison, and Richard Manuel and Rick Danko.]
