Great stuff Wolfy!!

It just makes you think how short life is and how we have to seize every moment of everyday.

By all accounts a good man.

God bless Jon Lord

I was quite shocked to read that Jon's record company expected him to go on a promotion tour for the Concerto album.
What do these people think - that you dance on the table while you're trying to fight cancer?

Jon's last ever recorded interview will be available for a few more days on this link:

www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01m182x

It's hard to recognize his voice. He sounds as frail as he looked during the last months

Lioness, yes I agree that it did not sound like Jon's usual voice at all. Such a sad time.
Looking forward to the Concerto release but will wait for the expanded CD/DVD release later in the year hopefully which will follow the CD only release.
