The first 45 vinyl record I ever purchased was Deep Prurple's "Might Just Take Your Life". It opens with that organ voice that was such an integral part of that band's legendary sound. Keith Emerson & Rick Wakeman are great talents in their own right but in my opinion, Jon Lord was the greatest Rock keyboardist of all time. Words will never come close to describing what he meant to so many people. I envy his friends and family that they were able to be close to such a wise, extremely talented and humble man. Godspeed Jon
There would be no Deep Purple without Jon. Jon was Deep Purple & always will be. We have all been blessed with the music you have given to us without ever knowing what an impact you would have on us. Your music will live on in our hearts & without a doubt people will be saying Jon was the greatest keyboard player ever! There will never be another one like him...ever! God Bless your family. May the power of our love for Jon help you heal during this great loss in your lives.
Deep Purple were one of my all time favourite bands .Thankyou for being there Jon and making me smile .Your music lives on.Condolences to your family.
Jon's keyboard playing will always form part of my life. I grew up with his music and I am deeply sorry that he's not with us anymore. My condolences to his famiy. Nacho from Spain.
