While many of us are fond of Eagle's Hotel California, Gipsy Kings hold special memory for me. Baba introduced me with Gipsy Kings and their version of Hotel California. I nevertheless became fond of Eagle's version lateron, like many others. He once took up the tune of Gipsy Kings' guitar in his Sitar. He played the entire tune in the thickest of the strings to create that rough and 'rocky' sound. While it ended he smiled and said "don't think we cannot play what they can play and make you people dance all night long." He never played that again in his entire life.

There are sounds roaming around us, whispering somewhere around the corner of an empty room, somewhere down the memory lanes.
