JOHN ENTWISTLE is dead, apparently of a heart attack. Bummer.

UPDATE: Ed Driscoll has some thoughts. I saw The Who at RFK stadium in 1989, from 9th row seats. They were awesome. I always liked Entwistle because he was so businesslike, and so incredibly good. That’s a combination I admire — common in bass players, not so common elsewhere in rock and roll.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Brink Lindsey shares some memories of drunken revels and jam sessions with Entwistle.
