John Entwistle dead at 57

who-mygenerationThis is just so damn sad and depressing that I feel like I’ve been kicked in the stomach.

This is the coolest album ever (not to mention the coolest album cover) and was single-handedly responsible for me to pick up a bass guitar… I was 15 years old and had never voluntarily picked up any instrument, but Entwistle’s bass solo in “My Generation” caused me to obsess over the bass – and a bright red P-Bass clone that cost me $75.
When I was 16 the following year, I blew up my stereo speakers to Entwistle’s bass solo in “Trick Of The Light” – just too damn loud…

*sigh* R.I.P…
