The Who: 5:15, Live at The Royal Albert Hall

When it comes to a huge bass tone, it doesn’t get much bigger than John Entwistle’s signature sound. Today we’re celebrating The Ox’s birthday with a clip that proves that point.

Taken from The Who’s performance at Royal Albert Hall in 2000, Entwistle lays down a mighty groove on the song “5:15” before taking an insane solo around the five-minute mark. He pulls out all the stops with incredible right hand technique, tapping, and a drop tuner on his E-string.

Happy birthday, Thunderfingers.
