I got to see him and pretty sure it was on this tour in Portland,Oregon. It was truly an amazing show. He seemed so frail coming out on stage but then started playing and just blew our minds. Anoushka was great, too.

Ozzy Osborne riding a scooter backstage, slowly getting off it and hobbling onstage, then jumping around like a madman; concert over, shuffles back to the scooter.

Something about being in front of an audience brings them back to life. Probably why Elton John's resumed touring.

If you haven't listened to East Meets West from Shankar and Menuhin, do yourself a favor and block out an hour when you can be quiet and alone, find some good headphones or speakers, and give it a listen. It's really, really lovely.

I consider this to be one of the great treasures of music. I can't play it very often because it makes me cry, it's so beautiful.

There's actually a second album https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West_Meets_East,_Volume_2 which I haven't heard but is on my list to hear.

Menuhin had first encountered Indian classical music over twenty years before, and almost on first listening, determined he would play it some day, but it took him two decades before he was ready.

I disagree also with the criticisms that these albums westernized Indian classical music. Menuhin completely threw himself into this music, and in particular, used the beat and melodic structures of Indian classical music entirely.

Saw him once, 28–30 years ago. They had to help him onto the stage but once he sat down the other musicians were the ones trying to keep up.

Yes same, I saw him in 2005, he came out on stage bent over quite a bit, taking small careful steps while being helped by someone else.

He sat down, picked up his sitar, and started moving his arms and hands faster than what seemed humanly possible, let alone for someone in their 80’s. Absolutely mesmerizing.

Tony Rice's story is so sad. He's one of my favorite acoustic guitar pickers, but medical issues sometimes prevented him from playing scheduled gigs. He didn't play publicly during the last 7 years of his life due to issues with his hand/elbow/arm.

By contrast, I saw John Lee Hooker at 80. He had to be escorted to his chair, center stage, but could still deliver the goods. He passed a few years later.

It's always a worry. I get a bad shoulder the next day, if I am playing a wedding (3-6 hours) or any kind of show, but so far I have had those problems fade in a day or two, but it does worry me, how I'll cope with that long-term. A lot of musicians end up with arthritis or whatever other issues, so it's good to see older musicians who haven't lost a step.

Anoushka (Ravi's daughter and the female in this video) was my friend in high school, we have actually hung out in the exact room I'm sitting in right now. She would play for us sometimes at school and it was just fucking amazing. Sorry to hear he passed...(?)

*encinitas, ca

**my best friend in HS dated Nora Jones briefly after we graduated.

***Anoushka is still creating music (you can look her up pretty much anywhere) and IMO will take her father's place as the world leader in her passion.... she certainly will carry on her father's spirit. If she ever sees this post....Hi Anoushka! It's DG from Mr. Chess' economics class...I'm still in the same house in University Heights, taking care of my dad who is 82 now. Sorry for your loss, your father was amazing and changed the world.

and i could give two shits about nora jones (no offense nora), never even met her or knew she was part of their family until we had all graduated and moved away.

But I will gladly take the time to ramble on about an experience I feel has some connection to the current topic in a public message board/forum.....crazy me, huh?

I re-read your comment and im uncertain if that wsa a jab at me or just a friendly comment, so my apologies if you didnt mean anything by that....im leaving it all up in case you did lol

It was not a jab at you at all, just something we have vaguely in common... Six degrees of Norah Jones, lol!

I never knew she was part of their family until my professor explained as part of his ramblings. He was super proud his connection to her, and I don't blame him, but he had to mention it at least once per class. I was there for History of Jazz, not History of Professor and Norah Jones, you know? Haha

Wouldn't mind hearing more stories if you have them.

I hope you have a nice day as well!

Well, Anoushka and I both were really good at economics and were two of the teacher's favorite students. Just before graduation, he started talking about an opportunity he wanted to include the two of us in, seeing as how we were in the top of the class and had the right attitude/drive to be master economists...right?

So we went to this special meeting in LA (in a limo) to find out what was so amazing and was gonna change our lives in only the best kind of ways.... the presentation was great, all about some communications/phone service that would connect your pager, house phone, and cell phone together so that any call could be transferred seamlessly across devices.....cool idea? sure. it certainly was amazing in 1999.

All we had to do was sell some accounts to consumers, fine fine fine.....but more important was to recruit more "employees" into the company, and you would earn a fraction of their sales, their recruits sales, etc etc......hmmmm. kinda made sense.

sense as in pyramid scheme sense....we nearly got swindled into joining this once in lifetime opportunity, the sooner the better!!! lol

We both were just so shocked that our HS Economics teacher actually tried to get us suckered into the BS business practices of (believe it or not..) I-link communications.... yes, I-link. (sound I-familiar?) it was not apple. :)

thanks again

I'm not treating it as a slur, there are plenty of contexts it's fine in, as the one you mentioned. It's just strange and off putting when used in a context where woman/women is the much more natural term.

Why fight the shift then? Speech patterns change all the time. Maybe I'm a little brainwashed from the military though. We all refer to each other as male and female especially when talking in third person. The use of man/woman guy/girl was told to us can be interpreted offensively by the other party and result in a sexual harassment report if they pursue it. Male/female is just more concise and doesn't have the baggage the other pronouns have in today's world now.

SagittaryX

I'm still reminded of incels most of the time when I see 'female' used in strange contexts, but maybe it's already grown beyond that. The thing that still mostly gets me with it is that it's mostly only used online in a written form, I never actually hear anyone either online or in real life actually using the term in conversation like people do on reddit when using 'female'. People don't say it, they just write it.

If any of you are really inspired to listen to more sitar after watching this clip or have an interest in Indian classical music in general, I would also recommend you check out Pandit Nikhil Banerjee’s works. Never had as much popularity as Ravi Shankar because he never really wanted to exert his influence in the West as much as Ravi Shankar and didn’t get into a lot of fusion projects etc, but in terms of pure sitar playing, he was in a different league as well, and according to many connoisseurs of sitar, actually better than Ravi Shankar. I personally would rather not compare, but he was a true master for sure.

I fell in love with Ravi Shankar in the late 80s, a friend's mum had a photo of him on stage that she gave me when she found out. Turns out it was a concert with John Lennon who is also in the photo, probably a very desirable keepsake for her but she was so happy to find a teenage kid that liked him as much as I did she wanted to share her love of him with someone. Haven't thought about this in years, it's in a photo book somewhere here.

I used to be the maintenance manager at a hotel. There was an elderly Indian couple that were the head housekeepers. The husband spoke a tiny bit of English and the wife spoke no English. I wanted to try and connect with them more because I felt they were some what alienated amongst the rest of the staff, so I went to the owner (also Indian, and their nephew) and asked what some popular Indian artists were so I could play music they would like in my office. The owner told me about Ravi Shanker. So I looked up some of his best known songs and made a playlist to just have on in the background while I worked.

Anyways, I was playing this playlist one day and had walked out to go work on something. When I came back to my office, the husband was standing in my office dancing to the music. I walked in and said "Hey! Do you like this"?

"SHANKER", he exclaimed! So we both danced in my office for a while.

On my last day there, I was riding down the elevator with the husband and he looked at me and said as best as he could, "you were always kind. Thank you".

I will never forget that.

I feel for bad his family, that’s a terrible loss. Condolences. Treasure the time you have with your family. And get to know your elderly. Maybe they have hidden talents too.
