The Who frontman Roger Daltrey insists late band member JOHN ENTWISTLE died in a manner fitting his notorious rock 'n' roll lifestyle. Entwistle died in Las Vegas, Nevada, in June 2002 from a heart attack induced by taking cocaine. And Daltrey insists the bassist's death aged 57 was preferable to dying slowly in old age. He says, "John was John - you could never change him, a real rock 'n' roll character and a real rock lifestyle. I mean does it matter, the sudden ending with the line of coke and the hooker in Las Vegas - I mean, is it that bad at 57? "What's the alternative? The alternative may be very slow and smelly, as GEORGE ORWELL said. All I know is that I f**king miss him."
