Gone, but not forgotten

LAS VEGAS -- The Hard Rock Hotel here is being flooded with calls from The Who fans requesting to stay in the room where the band's bassist, 57-year-old John Entwislte, died in June.

The Hard Rock has been denying the requests and won't disclose which one of the hotel's 657 rooms Entwistle was staying in when he died of an apparent heart attack.

Hard Rock officials said they are thinking about creating a permanent memorial to Entwistle in the hotel, but were waiting to speak with his longtime bandmates first.
