John Entwistle (9 October 1944 – 27 June 2002)

‘I ain’t heard anyone play like I do in my band, and I’m very happy about that.’

John Entwistle

John Entwistle is arguably the greatest bass guitar player in the history of rock music, taking a instrument which was stagnant within the genre and giving it new life. Playing with uncommon speed, tone, and ferocity, his approach mirrored what his bandmates in The Who were doing to create a unique, racuous sound. Remembered for his energy, humour, and unforgettable contributions to music, Entwistle was a legend in music.
