Printed in USA, [c.1994]. 4pp fold out menu, approx. 9 x 5 inches. Dated 1994- rear page advertises forthcoming Vegas Hard Rock Hotel (due Feb.1995). SIGNED by the legendary late-John Entwistle to front cover in blue ballpoint, with accompanying inscription; THE 'OO'/ DYSLEXIA/ RULES/ K.O. Fine condition throughout. John Entwistle was born October 9, 1944 in war torn London. He rose to rock and roll stardom during the "British Invasion" of the 1960s with the UK rock group The Who, the loudest band on the planet; their live performances were infamous and for most of the 1970s they were listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the loudest rock band in the world, measured at 130 decibels, achieved by John Entwistle's resonant low end and Pete Townsend's trademark windmill power chords. After Pete, John was the second songwriter for the band, and penned the classics 'Boris the Spider', 'My Wife' and 'Heaven and Hell'. From his innovations with round wound bass strings to his soaring bass riffs and signature sound, Entwistle changed the face of the electric bass forever. "John did for the bass what Jimi Hendrix did for the guitar." Entwistle is considered by many to be the best bass guitarist that ever lived, adored by legions of music lovers and respected by his peers. Tragically, John died of a heart attack on June 27, 2002 at the age of 57 on the eve of a major US tour with The Who. Item #46484
