"Destroyed. Karan Joseph, one of the most incredible Indian musicians, has committed suicide. Played with Pentagram on our MTV Unplugged set," singer and composer Vishal Dadlani tweeted.
#KaranJoseph was a genius. Should have been far more celebrated than he was. It's really unfair, how the music scene works in India. :(— VISHAL DADLANI (@VishalDadlani) September 9, 2017
