John Entwistle will be laid to rest in his Gloucestershire home town...

The funeral of THE WHO bassist JOHN ENTWISTLE is due to take place today (July 10).

This afternoon’s event in his home town of Stow On The Wold in Gloucestershire, is to be private at the request of Entwistle’s family.

The bassist’s official website, reports that there will be an open service in London later this year. Mourners wishing to make a donation should do so to the Teenage Cancer Trust, a charity that The Who have been actively involved with in recent years.

Entwistle was found dead in a Las Vegas hotel room on June 27, the victim of a suspected heart attack. The Who were on the eve of a US tour, which the surviving members have continued with.
