A world cultural icon.

I am grateful for his lifetime of contributions to music.

A wonderful musician. I've still got a cassette somewhere with one of his sitar concerts. He could really make the instrument sing.

I once heard him and his daughter Anoushka Shankar perform on Echoes some time ago and I might have a CD or two of their music. R.I.P.

He is survived by TWO amazing daughters: Anoushka Shankar, and Norah Jones ( half sisters to each other).

Too bad George Harrison is no longer with us to comment on his passing.

I have two vinyl LPs from the series of "East meets West" Albums he did in the Seventies with classical violinist Yehudi Menuhin.

I listen to him all the time.

Brilliant composer. Deserves to be studied.

I was listening to his music 10 minutes before I found out he died.
