9th Oct 1944, Born on this day, John Entwistle, bassist with The Who, nicknamed The Ox. The Who scored the 1965 UK No.2 single ‘My Generation’ plus over 20 other UK Top 40 hits, as well as 16 US Top 40 singles. In the early days of The Who, once the lineup had stabilised and it was settled that Roger Daltrey was to be the front man, Entwistle started to dye his fair hair black, and continued to so do until the 1980s. Entwistle died in Las Vegas on 27th June 2002, one day before the scheduled first show of The Who’s US tour.
