>>which brings me to ask the question: IS there a "John entwistle like" 

Not that I'm suggesting these guys would have or should have taken the job, there is Chris Squire and Billy Sherwood, both of whom are melodic bassists. I offer these two just as evidence that more melodic bassists are out there. Zak Starkey's style is more appreciative of Keith's than Kenney's was. There are bassists out there who are more appreciative of John's style.

My bigger point, or implication really, is that Roger wanted a guy like Keith but not like John and I can't figure that out. Of course, maybe now Roger realizes he needs to shut up and play it Pete's way. Without Pete, there is no Who. Roger's now under Pete's thumb.

which brings me to ask the question: IS there a "John entwistle like" 
bassist?  I mean, there have been some great drummers who could've filled the 
drummer's seat following keith's death (phil collins reportedly asked. I think 
would've been a good choice). of course, no one can be like keith behind the 
drums (or anywhere else for that matter. maybe ozzy. ha), but there have been 
pretty good contenders through the years that could've done the job and made 
it at least SEEM like they're playing in keith's style a la what zak is doing, 
but are there any real good contenders for the bass?  I for one don't think
