I just read the news. So sad. Jon Lord was a musical giant. I have everything he's recorded from the Artwoods on...such an amazing musical legacy. His music of recent years was breathtaking, just something to behold. My thoughts go out to his family, friends and fans.

I just came home and had the bad news in my mailbox. Very sad. I was hoping so much he would still be able to enjoy a few years more on this planet...

I've just read the devastating news

One of my musical heroes is gone and my heart is full of grief.

My thoughts are with his wife and daughters.

Thank you, Jon, for all you've done for us. You will never be forgotten.

From www.whitesnake.com

It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Jon Lord, who suffered a fatal pulmonary embolism today, Monday 16th July 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 Whitesnake & 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.

Jon’s solo work was universally acclaimed when he eventually retired from Deep Purple in 2002.

Jon passes from Darkness to Light.

Jon Lord 9 June 1941 - 16 July 2012.

Had the great honour of meeting Jon a couple of times and he was a true gentleman - charming, friendly and humble.
His musical genius has brought me immeasurable pleasure over so many years.

My sincere and grateful thanks to the Maestro.
