ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian has posted the following message in response to the news of the recent passing of THE WHO bassist John Entwistle:

"I was completely shocked today when Lonn Friend called to tell me that The Ox, John Entwistle had died in Vegas. Absolutely stunned. The man was a giant among men. The most influential bass player of our time. His stoic demeanor the antithesis of Moon's insanity, Townshend's mania, and Daltrey's swagger. I was going to see these living legends this weekend in Los Angeles along with hundreds of thousands of others on their upcoming tour. I'm glad I got to see him in my lifetime. His legacy will live eternally, holding down the bottom of arguably the greatest rock band ever. Listening to 'Boris' and drinking a Guinness, Scott"
