John Lord passed away today... :-(

I already had a lousy day and now this. He will always be my favorite keyboard player.



Jon Lord has sadly passed away


It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Jon Lord, who suffered a fatal pulmonary embolism today, Monday 16th July at the London Clinic, after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Jon was surrounded by his loving family.

Jon Lord, the legendary keyboard player with Deep Purple co-wrote many of the bands legendary songs including Smoke On The Water and played with many bands and musicians throughout his career.


Best known for his Orchestral work Concerto for Group & Orchestra first performed at Royal Albert Hall with Deep Purple and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in 1969 and conducted by the renowned Malcolm Arnold, a feat repeated in 1999 when it was again performed at the Royal Albert Hall by the London Symphony Orchestra and Deep Purple.


Jon’s solo work was universally acclaimed when he eventually retired from Deep Purple in 2002.


Jon passes from Darkness to Light.
Jon Lord 9 June 1941 – 16 July 2012.

So sad, one of the greatest keyboardist (and composer) of our time. His work with Deep Purple, Whitesnake, solo and collaborations defined a lot in the music we love and enjoy.

May he rest in peace

Aye, goodly Wyvern!

Raise thine flagons aloft, fellow warriors of steel; for upon this day a brother hath been claimed by ye jealous Gods who could wait for him no longer!


HAILS SIR LORD!
THINE FLESH MAY HAVE CEASED, BUT THINE ODES SHALL LIVE E'ERMORE!

This post now concludeth!
