JOHN ENTWISTLE INTERVIEW – DISC and MUSIC ECHO -JANUARY 14, 1967

Disc and Music Echo, Who

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.”
