The death of The Who’s John Entwistle doesn’t seem to be as clear-cut as the original reports of a cocaine overdose. A British coroner investigated Entwistle upon his return to his homeland for burial, and finds two different types of cocaine in his system (no alcohol), but says that the doses would not be lethal to a person with a healthy heart, surmising that Entwistle must have had some sort of naturally occurring heart disease.
