CNN.com and multiple other news sources report that John Entwistle of the legendary UK rock band, The Who, died today in Las Vegas at the Hard Rock Hotel.

The Who were poised to start another North American tour tomorrow. The Who’s lineup is down to two original members with singer Roger Daltry and guitarist Pete Townsend.

An official announcement has yet to be made about the tour but it is safe to say it will be postponed for at least a week if not longer. The CNN report, noted the Clark County Coroner not knowing the cause of death but saying an investigation was under way.

The musical legacy of The Who is far reaching. From their groundbreaking early work as part of the British Invasion in the mid- 1960’s to their reputation as one of the late 1960’s loudest bands to their creatively out-of-the-box rock opera, Tommy – The Who will go down as one of the more important acts in the history of rock and roll.
