John Entwhistle and The Bloody English
Chris Salewicz, Let It Rock, March 1973
JOHN ENTWHISTLE has always been an enigma. On the other members of the Who we can pin an identity. Townshend creator and, at the same time, the Mad Axeman; Moon super looner of all time; Daltrey buckskinned mike-spinner extraordinaire. But Entwistle, what do you say about him? Obviously the easiest description is that he's the anchor-man, a description made more apposite if you remember the first Observer feature on the Who in the mid-sixties. "Without him, they'd fly, fly away."
