Last night we lost the legendary Jon Lord, co-founder of the one and only Deep Purple. There will probably never be another composer or organ player as influential as Lord with his own styling's of fusing Classical and Baroque elements into Rock and Roll, and it was the sound of his Hammond Organ playing that helped define Deep Purple's sound and make them one of the most influential rock bands of all time.
If you have never had the opportunity to hear any of Deep Purple's work, or are only just hearing about them or Jon Lord under these tragic circumstances, then sit back, and enjoy some of the finest music from one of the most iconic bands of the last 40 plus years.
Aside from Deep Purple, Lord aslo worked with Whitesnake, Paice, Ashton & Lord, The Artwoods and The Flower Pot Men.
At this time our thoughts are with Jon Lords family and friends, may he rest in peace and always be remembered.
