Hello all; The Dark Horse has passed away. George along with the Beatles pretty much defined my generation. I really believe that if George had not picked up the sitar all those years ago, Indian music and sitar playing outside India, and of course this Indian music posting board would probably not exist. In my case, I would not have ever learned how to play guitar or sitar if not for being inspired by George and his close friend, Ravi Shankar later on. So, this short note in acknowledgement of George's contribution of promoting Indian music for those of us in the west, and of course, thanks for the memories George!
