Hundreds of friends and family on Thursday remembered sitar virtuoso Ravi Shankar as an unfailingly generous teacher with a gentle spirit and sense of humor whose music fostered understanding between East and West.
It was touted as the first Beatles "reunion" interview since the band broke up in 1970. Surviving Beatles Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr joined the widows of their former band mates, Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison, last night for an hourlong conversation on CNN's "Larry King Live."
Olivia Harrison said Shankar helped her late husband George Harrison achieve a more meaningful life when he was a young Beatle.
"They were like father and son as well as brothers," Harrison said on an outdoor stage decorated with garlands of white flowers at the Self Realization Fellowship center in Encinitas, the oceanfront suburb north of San Diego where Shankar lived for the last two decades.
