You were an incredible man, musician and spiritual practitioner. Rest in peace Ravi.
you've probably known about him for like 15 minutes.
In an interview I heard that this guy was a MAJOR influence to Devin Townsend. Never really checked him out, but it's undoubtedly a loss to the music community as a whole. RIP

Norah Jones is gonna be sad, and if she's sad, I'm sad.

RIP, the end of the world is beginning?

Great musician. RIP.
Rest in Peace
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
