S P Balasubramaniam Expired today at 74 years of age. S P Balasubramaniam (SPB) was an acclaimed playback singer of Indian movie-songs, music composer, actor, and movie producer. He had bagged several awards and Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan, during his lifetime. I am a fan of his works and needless to say, I was unfortunate enough to be unable to meet him when he was alive. This article is a small tribute to this stalwart, who would sing classical songs with élan though he did not have any training in it.
