Most everyone who is aware of The Who as a major British band realize that the three instrumentalists were very good at their crafts, and some say that Keith Moon may have been the best rock and roll drummer who ever lived. However, the bass player, John Entwistle, did much more than play bass.
John Alec Enwistle, born 19441009 and died 20029627, was one of the original members of the band. He and Pete Townshend formed a band in the late 1950s, and he left to join Roger Daltrey’s band in the early 1960s. He convinced Daltrey to have Townshend join, and with the admission of Keith Moon The Who were formed.
