Stevie Ray Vaughan died in a helicopter crash. The chopper hit a man-made ski slope while trying to navigate through dense fog.
Whilst on retreat with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the Beatles learned that Brian Epstein had died from a sleeping-pill overdose. The Maharishi rationalizes their manager’s death by explaining that it’s “not important,” as it exists only on the physical plane. Epstein was 32.
