John likes animals. One of his songs for the Who’s new LP is about them. It is called “Boris The Spider.”
John Entwistle: “You see we were sitting in a London club, the Scotch one night, me and Bill Wyman, and we started thinking up names for a spider. I suggested Boris, then on the way home I said you could have Creepy Crawley for the chorus – you’ll understand that when you hear it.
“Anyway our driver laughed so I thought it must be good. I like sinister songs, he says. “Boris” is about a man lying in bed watching this spider crawl around the room. Eventually he treads on it.”
