Oh shit. Entwistle is dead.

John Entwistle, Who bassist extraordinaire, is dead. Here's an AP obit, via CNN. He was found dead in his Vegas hotel room. The group was supposed to open there tomorrow (Friday). I didn't even know they were touring again.

The Who Sell Out is one of the CDs in my car's changer right now; it has been for about a week now. Entwistle's neat mix of walking parts plus octaves, coupled with Super Well-Defined Punchy Bass Tone made him my favorite rock bassist.
