ah noted surtur, it's confusing when you have two men of the same name who are both known for pretty much the same thing. so note people this is actually the film music director who died and not the sitar virtuoso but was still amazing

The picture and the news on here were enough to throw me.

Kinda glad it's not the other Ravi Shankar. Still unfortunate, though.
