Ravi Shankar dead at 92

EDIT CONTAINS 4:3 MATERIAL Sitarist and composer Ravi Shankar has died near his home in Southern California, his family said on Tuesday (December 12). He was 92. Shankar, a three-time Grammy winner with legendary appearances at the 1967 Monterey Festival and Woodstock, had been in fragile health for several years and last Thursday (December 6) underwent surgery, his family added in a statement. Shankar is credited with popularizing Indian music through his work with violinist Yehudi Menuhin and The Beatles in the late 1960s. Shankar lived in both India and the United States. He is also survived by his daughter, Grammy-winning singer Norah Jones, three grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.
