Additional Facts
One of the best living bass players, John Entwistle was bass guitarist with The Who, along with Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend and the late Keith Moon. Entwistle was elected to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (as a member of the Who) in 1990. He was also awarded the 1997 Laurence Olivier Theatre Award for Outstanding Musical Production of 1996 for Tommy, performed at the Shaftesbury Theatre with Pete Townshend.

Entwistle earned the nickname, "The Ox", due to the fact that (while his band mates thrashed around the stage and destroyed their instruments) he would stand his ground silently and actually protect his bass from harm.
