John Entwistle

Post  B6 on Mon Sep 24, 2012 4:45 am



Voice type: Baritone
Sung range: F1-D5
Total range: F1-E♭5

Significant High Notes:

Significant Low Notes:

  • B2 ("Medac")
  • A2 ("Medac")
  • C2 (Speaking voice)
  • F1 ("Boris The Spider")

.......................................................
*Orange marks notes with questionable registers: absolutely no use figuring out these.
*Blue marks probable non-modal notes.
*Red marks extremely bad, unimpressive or unintentional notes.
*Italics mark non-sung notes.


Though mostly known as the (absolutely incredible) bassist in The Who, John Entwistle has had a decentish share of vocals. Though in later days he sounded like a bass when speaking, he sounded way higher in early singing performances... Though he's singing in a weird raspy head voice for some of his highs. I'm gonna check if I can find more singing by him...
Btw I'm listing the Eb5 as "total range" because I think he unintentionally reaches Eb5s while intentionally singing D5s in that live cover.

3:15 onwards - Seriously, what the fuck? Listen to his speaking, it booms like an amplified voice as opposed to the tenor interviewer!

Weird voice for sure. The D5s and Eb5s sound like head voice to me but anyway.

In "Boris The Spider", he sings very low. I haven't checked now but he hits really BASS notes

He had a high falsetto too. I remember "A quick one while he's away"

I believe the low note on "Borris the Spider" is F1. "Boris the spiDER." I'd say it's completely blue though.

Well it's F1 anyway so why are we debating it Laughing
By the way, do you guys think the A4s and Bb4s in "Cousin Kevin" sound more like him or Townshend?

I'd say the G4s and F#4s and A4s in twist and shout are full, don't sound like falsetto to me

This guy could've had one of the most awesome low ranges ever if he had actually bothered to sing with it. Sad
