Rest In Peace – Jon Lord – 6/9/1941 – 7/16/2011
One of the greatest hard rock musicians to ever grace the keyboard passed away today. Former Deep Purple keyboardist suffered a fatal pulmonary embolism today after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Jon was 71 years old.
We will never forget his awesome playing with Deep Purple and Whitesnake. Our condolences go out to Jon’s family, friends and former band mates.
