Throwback Concert: John Entwistle at Toad’s Place 2001

99.1 PLR celebrates 50 years! This week we are celebrating another great year in our history: 2001!

That year PLR welcomed The John Entwistle Band to Toad’s Place. John “The Ox” Entwistle, best known as the bassist and a founding member of The Who, hit the road in 2001 to support his band’s studio album “Music from Van-Pires,” released in 2000. Sadly it would be his final solo album before his death in 2002. His show at Toad’s would also be his final Connecticut show.
