Norah Jones ' father Ravi Shankar died Wednesday at the age of 92 after battling upper-respiratory and heart issues over the past year. The famed sitar player spent most of his life making music and was a celebrated musician all over the world. He was most recently nominated for a Grammy for World Music for 2013.

Shankar is survived by his wife, Sukanya Shankur and two daughters, fellow muscian Anoushka Shankar and Norah Jones. His son, Shubhendra, died in 1992.

Shankar recently performed at a celebration honoring his nearly 10 decades of making music and was honored with three Grammys during his lifetime. His collaboration with Beatles rocker George Harrison made him a household name back in the '70s. In later years, Shankar also served as a nominated member of the upper chamber of the Parliament of India. He was given the country's highest civilian honor, the Bharat Ratna, in 1999. He also performed with his daughter, Anoushka Shankar. over the last few years.

Shankar, the following year. He and Devi separated in the '40s and Shankar went on to have a relationship with dancer Kamela Shastri. He then had an affair with New York concert producer Sue Jones, and they had daughter Norah in 1979. Norah, of course, is also an accomplished musician and owner of a pile of Grammy awards.

In the early '80s, things got a little complicated, it seems. After welcoming Norah in 1979, Shankar fathered a daughter, Anoushka Shankar. with Sukanya Rajan Shankur in 1981, the same year he apparently ended things with Shastri. He then lived with Jones until 1986 and went on to marry Sukanya in 1989. They remained married until Shankar's passing.
