On June 27th 2002: Who bassist John Entwistle was found dead in his hotel room at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas one day before The Who were to kick off their 2002 tour. It was later revealed he died doing coke off the ass of a stripper, of a heart attack. That’s Rock & Roll.

He was bored as a bass player, so he switched to being a bass guitar player. Click the pic to find the difference, and hear what his peers had to say about his talents.

He was 57 years old. Here’s one of my Entwistle favorites from May of 1971, “My Wife.”
