    I just saw a video of 30 years of the Who and besides being the amazing bassist that he was, I realized that John Entwistle was also a great vocalist.

    The few songs that he sang during a Who show displayed a very strong expressive rock voice.

    I confess to not ever listening to his solo albums, but in doing a Youtube search, I discovered him singing a version of "Twist and Shout" that despite having been done in the latter part of his career, still rivalled John Lennon's on the first Beatles album.

    was a fantastic vocalist, bassist (he was the rhythm guitar in the who AND the bassist), soloist (watch his 5:15 solo from his last tour on you tube) but fantastic songwriter... if only ... if only...

    Is he playing with a pick in that video?

    That was great, thanks for the link.
  5. he does play with a pick, fingers, plays the trumpet, draws, sang, guitar, loved cars even when he went most of his life without a drivers lisence.

    he was a great man.
    lived his dreams.

    RIP OX.
