I bought this and AN OX'S TALE at approximately the same time. THUNDERFINGERS is built around an interview with Entwistle in his home rather than a biography as AOT is. Both of these DVDs complement each other, despite being produced at different times by different people. I recommend both of them, but if you can only get one, get AN OX'S TALE. It has more biographical info as well as interviews with other people associated with Entwistle.

Having only watched this once, I do not have much more to say. The segments where Entwistle is showing off some of his guitar collection was interesting. I had never heard of his theory about why he was a bass guitar player as opposed to a bass player. Granted this might no be too interessting to a non-fan, but if you bothered to read this, or any other review, of this DVD, you are probably enough of an Entwistle fan to want THUNDERFINGERS an to enjoy it. So buy a copy. You'll find something in it you'll like or find intersting.

Hell, I bought his bass instructional video and I don't even own a bass.

I don't intend to buy a bass, either.

Yes, there are interesting points in that DVD, even for a non-bass guitarist.

Hey! Imanaged to comment on three DVDs in one review.

Get 'em all!!

Jack

Compared to an Ox's Tale, this is a tatty production. There is a lot of filler including John just standing in front of his amp noodling solo. Now, I'm a huge JE fan and a bass player myself, but even I can hardly stand to watch another man's noodle, let alone paying for that right. The interviewer and the interviewess frequently appear stiff, or in the case of John's late girlfriend, worse.

It would have been nice to see some video of John's 70's band Rigor Mortis, but I'd have settled for some rehashed Who video. Either the producers couldn't afford or didn't bother to get any clearance of Who or Entwistle video material, so this is really a cheapo production. All of that being said, this rates three stars for some of the Entwistle humor poking through, and that there probably isn't much left in the vaults anyway. But if this DVD were a bass, I have no doubt John would have smashed the hell out of it. An Ox's Tale is superior to this.

Fairly boring ramble around his life and home. Doesn't add much and would probably have been scrapped if he hadn't died shortly after.

As a Who fan, this documentary did not really contain any information I did not already know, but is still worth owning for the Entwistle footage alone.

If I were Entwistle, I'd have bashed the interviewer, the first time he bashed the headstock of my priceless guitar against the shelf. The second time, he'd have been out on his ear. And leaning on the bass that I was "going to be buried with"? Who is this guy? Overall, not much to rave about, but if you're an Entwistle fan, you're going to want it anyway.
