R.I.P. Jon Lord 1941-2012

It’s very sad to hear that Jon Lord has passed away today. I was privileged to play in Whitesnake with Jon from 1978-82 and again for a short time in 1984, plus I played on most of his solo album ‘Before I Forget’. Apart from being the founding father of rock keyboards, especially Hammond organ, and a brilliant composer, he was also a lovely person who will be greatly missed. A sad loss for the world of music.
