Ravi Shankar, the legendary sitar musician who introduced the instrument to the legendary Beatle George Harrison and brought Indian music to the Western world, died Tuesday near his home in San Diego, Calif.
It's been almost 32 years since The Beatles' John Lennon was killed outside his building on New York City's Upper West Side on December 8, 1980, by unstable gunman Mark David Chapman, 57, but fans of Lennon still come out on October 9 every year to celebrate his birthday.
How does one even begin to introduce a band that changed the world? The Beatles left behind an extensive catalog of diverse music, an omnipresent legacy from the four lads from Liverpool. Yet if you look beyond the spotlight of Lennon/McCartney classics, you might be surprised to find additional innovative songs from George Harrison that may just be as classic as the more popular songs.
