Some big time bassists and drummers are coming together to pay tribute to Keith Moon and John Entwistle, aka the rhythm section of my favorite band, The Who.  

John and Keith

The Event, which is being co-organized by drummer Brian Tichy is called “The Ox & The Loon,” and it’s going down April 24th at the House Of Blues in West Hollywood.  Check out the tentative line-up:

Bass Players:

  • Michael Anthony (Van Halen, Chickenfoot) 
  • Phil Chen (Jeff Beck, Rod Stewart, Pete Townshend)
  • Michael Devin (Whitesnake)
  • James Lomenzo (Megadeth, John Fogerty)



  • Kenny Aronoff (everyone)
  • Dave Lombardo (Slayer)
  • Stephen Perkins (Jane’s Addiction)
  • Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater)
  • Rikki Rockett (Poison),
  • Chad Smith (Chickenfoot, Red Hot Chili Peppers)
  • Brian Tichy. (Whitesnake, Foreigner, Ozzy)


Tichy says, “The more I listen to Moon and Entwistle, the more I am blown away and inspired,” “I am so looking forward to this night and putting together a show that brings us all together for the common love of a rhythm section that catapulted the Who to the top of all things rock ‘n roll!”  Wanna go, or better yet, wanna send your favorite DJ? Tickets are available via the House of Blues website.
