In Memory Of Jon Lord

This is a sad day, Jon Lord has 'left the building'. Jon put the 'deep' into Purple, he contributed greatly to their sound. Whatever he did musically was first-class. I feel privileged, honoured and grateful to have been able to work and create with him, he was a great musician and a true gentlemen. He gave his Hammond organ and Leslie speaker a special 'growl', my joke nickname for him was 'Growly Hammond'. Jon has departed, as we all must, but he'll never be forgotten, he was truly one of the greats. He's in the 'real world' now so Rock on Jon!
