John Lord RIP

Jon Lord, perhaps best known as the keyboard player for Deep Purple has died at the age of 71. He had been receiving treatment for pancreatic cancer since last August

The above video shows him at his best with some keyboard madness from Space Truckin'. And here's him talking about Highway Star.

Back in my Immigration Service days I encountered Jon. He struck me as a very pleasant and sef-effacing man
