    Ravi Shankar is the guru that the Beatles (60's rock group, Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Star) hooked up with for spiritual enlightenment. In their later recordings if you hear a sitar or similar east Indian music, chances are Ravi's playing or had some influence.

    This is a partially correct answer. Ravi Shankar is the Sitar musician who George Harrison hooked up with when George was looking into new sounds.

    Maharishi Mahesh Yogi was the Indian guru who the Beatles went to for spiritual enlightenment. He turned out to be a fraud, and the Beatles broke off from him. The song, "Sexy Sadie" from the "White Album" is a poison pen letter to the Maharishi.

    George always stayed on good terms with Shankar, however. If you watch the video "Concert for George", he and his musicians perform in the first part.

    Just thought I'd clear that up!

    Who is the father of who???? Never heard of either of them.

  • LittleToe

    I knew of Angelina and Norah, but the only familial connection I knew was the one on this board.

    Actually, I would have been totally depressed if I'd not known who Angelina was... go figure

    Glad that there are others who-don't-know-who-is-who's-dad-or-mom or even who is the person.

    Nora Jones, Lenny Kravitz are names I heard of (would'nt recognize them),

    The Star War names are familiar too - did'nt know about the family ties -

    For the rest (except Mulan & Princess and The Beatles) no bells are ringing.

    Okay let me see...

    Norah Jones and her father. NOPE , I didn't know that.

    Jennifer Anniston and her father. NOPE, I didn't know that. I use soap, but I don't watch soaps.

    Angelina Joli and father John Voit. YUP, I knew that one. I'm a tomb raider fan but glad she doesn't sport the pointy boobs like in the Playstation game. Man those things would be dangerous.

    Princess and Mulan.. daughter and mother. YUP, I knew that one. and that Mulan makes a super plum jam and I'll guess she gave princess some of that jam?


    Steve Egner is Mulans son in law. YUP, that is the way it goes since Princess is married to that fisher/guy who loves to fish. lol


    Liam sitting on Little Toe's lap is his nephew. YUP, I knew that one.

    that's all for now
