I'm just in shock right now. How can Entwistle be dead? I'm holding tickets to next week's show at the Shoreline Amphitheater. I'm going to the show, I don't care if they say it's cancelled. I'm going, and I expect a lot of other people will show up too. Even if it's just to listen to the silence together.
