L’ex-tastierista di Deep Purple e Whitesnake ha perso la sua battaglia personale col cancro ed é morto nella giornata di ieri. Ecco il comunicato sul suo sito:

"It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Jon Lord, who suffered a fatal pulmonary embolism today, Monday, July 16th at the London Clinic, after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Jon was surrounded by his loving family.

Jon Lord, the legendary keyboard player with DEEP PURPLE co-wrote many of the bands legendary songs including ’Smoke On The Water’ and played with many bands and musicians throughout his career.

Best known for his orchestral work Concerto For Group & Orchestra first performed at Royal Albert Hall with DEEP PURPLE and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in 1969 and conducted by the renowned Malcolm Arnold, a feat repeated in 1999 when it was again performed at the Royal Albert Hall by the London Symphony Orchestra and DEEP PURPLE.
