Re: Ravi Shankar dead at 92
sounded like crap then and still sounds like crap now. he needed to take lessons from bob marley.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28512090


That just goes to show how little you know about music and how little class you have about you. Ravi Shankar played a totally different type of music and was a star several years before Bob Marley was ever heard of on the world scene.

Bob Marley didn't form a band (The Teenagers with Peter Tosh) till 1963. Ravi Shankar began studying Indian classical music in 1938 and became internationally known in 1956.

Show some respect where it's due.

Totally a delightful music. Which is very hard to find in today's music.

Which I could have seen him play.

RIP, Ravi.

Thank you for posting this.

When I was a kid, I remember watching a documentary on tigers in India. After learning that the instrument heard throughout the program was a sitar, I looked into it more and came across Ravi Shankar. I got some of his music and loved it ever since.

May he RIP

Rabid Wankar dead at 92

Rabid Wankar, born April Fool’s Day 1920, often referred to as the “Little Pundit”, was an Indian who is best remembered playing with a big instrument, held erect between his legs as he caressed it bowl-shaped base.

Born in Various, he spent his youth touring Europe with the Herman and Adolf Dunce Group, 1939 Poland, 1940 Norway, France and Belgium, 1942 Russia, although his tours of England in 1940 and the USA in 1941 had to be cancelled. He gave up duncing in 1945 to study the toilet-sitar with court musician, Khan Get-up. In 1960, he drew the attention of Keith Best, the drop out Beetle and toured for many years with his Piss Tour in order to promote World Piss and other crazy leftwing New Age bunk.

In his time, he was awarded three Grumpy Awards and was nominated as a member of the upper chamber of the Syrian Parliament.

Re: Ravi Shankar dead at 92
First saw Shankar and his group perform at the student center of what was then Armstrong State college in 1971.
Takes some time to get your ears around the Indian ragas if you've only been used to western music....
The laid back, peacefully flowing attitude of the 3 musicians seated on the big pile of sumptuous pillows was periodically interrupted with a sudden acceleration of tempo and a furious flurry of jangling, buzzing pull-offs, hammer-ons, and some serious note bendings, accompanied by the two fellows on either side of him desperately trying to keep up on their single drums...lol




By the way, 812971, what is gabbage?

Re: Ravi Shankar dead at 92
Just picked up a few of his CDS's a few months back. Indian sitar music is so wonderfully complex yet sublime. The world has lost a true artist. If you get a chance pick up "Live at Monterrey" truly transcendentalizing.
