Sexy Sadie Dies age (about) 91
The Indian guru, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who is credited with setting the Beatles and other stars on the path to spiritual enlightenment, has died. The Maharishi, thought to have been 91 years old, died in his sleep on Tuesday evening at his home in the Netherlands.
He introduced the Transcendental Meditation movement to the West in 1959, with the intention of creating individual peace and enlightenment.
By the time of his death, it had grown into a multi-million dollar empire.

He became famous largely due to his meeting with the Beatles, who traveled to India in 1968 to his retreat at Rishikesh along with other stars such as Mia Farrow, Donovan and some of the Beach Boys. They had a nice time and wrote lots of songs, though Ringo said he had to take lots of Heinz Beans with him.
The song Sexy Sadie was said to be about the Maharishi, written by John Lennon who felt rather let down after the Maharishi alledegedly tried it on with a female member of his followers. Sexy Sadie, what have you done? You made a fool of everyone.
Anyway, Rest in Peace.
