"When You Hear the Thunder . . "


Today marks the fourth anniversary of the death of The Who bassist John Entwistle. "The Ox," as Entwistle was known, pioneered electric rock bass, and with Keith Moon formed the most devastating rhythm section in rock history. He died only one day before The Who were to launch their North American tour. If you've seen their performance in The Concert for New York City, you can tell it was going to be a major comeback. This man is in my personal Mount Rushmore.

Here is a nice eulogy delivered at his memorial service. What a cool guy he was.

Now sit down, boys and girls. It's time for your motherfucking bass lesson . . .

Davis: Of course, the world has yet to hear the thunder of our rhythm section.

Tree: Finally, someone worthy of the Goddess's worship.
