"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

John Entwistle is dead. I have always held that the Who is the greatest rock and roll band of all time. The Beatles don't count because like Elvis it is just unfair to make comparisons. Sure the Stones have been around longer but their music has never even been close to the technical or emotional brilliance of the Who. From the pure emotional hard raw music in the early music to the more mature and technical of Quadrophenia. And Entwistle was one of the greatest bassists (not to mention all around musicians) in rock (along with Geddy Lee). Listen to bass line in The Real Me (probably one of the greatest rock anthems of all time), it is not human.

The only time I ever got to see the Who was in 1989 at the Meadowlands. For a bunch of old geezers they played all out rock for more than four hours. As the comic store guy would say...best concert ever!
