R.I.P Jon Lord

Deep Purple were an early inspiration and influence on my love of music..My love of hard rock way back when...He was a great musician.
Love and respect his talent. Still sit in a my darkened listening room at night sometimes, and listen to my favorite, Child in Time. Think I'll do it tonight.
Rest In Peace Jon, and Thank You.
One of the best "rock" keyboardists ever. Loved the guy. Whip smart and well spoken too. He rates right up there with the likes of Rick Wakeman (Yes), Keith Emerson (E.L.P.), and countless other Prog. Rock keyboard players. Too many to mention in this posting. Been a huge Deep Purple fan forever. The loss of Jon Lord is a loss to the world of classic rock. R.I.P.
A sad day for sure......
Blasted the entire Made in Japan on original vinyl Tuesday night in his memory and in his honor.
