Default Deep Purple's Jon Lord dies at age 71

Both great bands.........

The keyboardist whose powerful, driving tones helped turn Deep Purple and Whitesnake into two of the most popular hard rock acts in a generation, died Monday. He was 71.

.A statement on Lord's official website says the Leicester, England-born musician suffered a fatal pulmonary embolism in London after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

Deep Purple ranks one of the top of my short list! If I had a few picks for a deserted island, Deep Purple would be one of them.

That is cause for sorrow. The man had a lot of great music in him yet. No one could make a HAMMOND b-3 jazz organ talk like he could. He owned that instrument and the sound he could get from it.

For a great blend of Deep Purple style on an old song......
