What an amazing guy. Heard phillip glass talking about him a few months ago. I'm not sure we realize the full extent of his impact on Western music. He won't be forgotten. Rest in peace.
One of his biggest influences in Western music was on John Coltrane in his later works. John Coltrane's later works revolutionized jazz.
He's help many other musicians too such as George Harrison and John McLaughlin.
He will be missed for the impact he's had on music around the world in multiple forms from rock, pop, jazz and traditional Indian music.
I just bought 3 Ragas a couple weeks ago, having no idea who he was. So, now I like Indian music. RIP
