R.I.P. Santhosh Lobo

Santhosh Lobo

With a heavy heart I bid farewell to my friend, the founder of IndianRockMp3, Santhosh Lobo. After a prolonged battle with cancer, Santhosh – the independent promoter of Indian music scene, is no more. Santhosh touched thousands of lives by simply setting up a website that would provide you every information about any Indian band you could possibly name. Be it articles, interviews or collaborations, he did everything selflessly, with a glee in his eyes which is what made him a special person in the Indian music scene.

With his passion aside, I knew this man for his candor, the motivation he provided me and the ease with which he took everything in his stride. I’ve lost someone I was close to, I’m devastated and my heart goes out to his family. I know we all move on with things in life, but this one’s definitely going to be a hard one. Rest in peace, Santhosh. I’ll miss you. Or rather, we all will.


R.I.P. Amit Shenoy

Lost my friend Amit Shenoy last month and found this picture of a happy him when we got ourselves clicked with Amon Amarth’s drummer Fredrik Andersson during their gig in Bangalore, India in December 2009.

In life we do not realize things when they are being done and we tend to miss them only later when we think about them.  It is events like these that shake us and bring back memories. And that is exactly what is happening. Would cherish all the time that I spent with you having Ashwin, Randhir, Pratik and Raja always there for company. Rest in peace, Amit!
