From Teh Wiki:
John Alec Entwistle (October 9, 1944 – June 27, 2002) was an English bass guitarist, songwriter, singer, and horn player, who was best known as the bass guitarist for rock band The Who. He is regarded as one of the greatest and most influential rock bassists of all time, creating an aggressive lead sound that helped influence contemporary and later bassists such as Les Claypool, Steve Harris, Lemmy, Geddy Lee, Phil Lesh, Noel Redding, Billy Sheehan, Chris Squire and Mike Watt.
Entwistle helped uncover the potential of the bass guitar as a lead instrument, using aggressive pentatonic lead lines, and a trebly sound virtually unheard of in the early 1960s. He pioneered the use of roundwound steel bass strings, made to his personal specifications by RotoSound. His search for a sound to cut through The Who's sonic onslaught led him to experiment with more and different basses, leading him to amass a collection of over 200 instruments by the time of his death. His search for the perfect sound led him to experiment most notably with Alembic's basses in the 1970s, Warwick in the 1980s, and Status all-graphite basses in the 1990s.
Does that make sense?
He played a instrument for a very famous band <<<Simple

Aha, yep this is what she went to see ^_^
Can I just say that this thread is very late, john died in 2002. . .
Not the fact that he's dead but..
I think we need lockage on this thread now..
I agree. . .
But hey, he was a great person but come on, why this thread now when the man died when the gamecube was out?
Lmao.. I thought it would be a tad more public if it was recent.. nevermind I even searched him on Wiki and saw June 27th (I think) and didn't notice the year 2002... my bad.
Meh, Steve harris PWNED him, steve is actually the 5th best bass player ever. He almost plays his bass like a guitar, tis' quite cool.
