Ravi Shankar Despised The Hippies
He described the audiences that flooded his legendary appearances at Woodstock and Monterey as "these strange young weirdos ... shrieking, shouting, smoking, masturbating and copulating - all in a drug-crazed state ... I used to tell them, 'You don't behave like that when you go to hear a Bach, Beethoven or Mozart concert.'" The Telegraph (UK) 12/12/12
