Jon Lord played at Lichfield Cathedral last week.
With incredibly bad timing due to be on staycation in Cornwall i missed it, along with Glenn at the Guitarfest and also a good friends wedding and a birthday party of my daughters friend!
However, reviews are filtering thru and here's some snippets:
During the morning 'Audience With Jon Lord' at Lichfield Garrick Theatre, Jon Lord was asked about the chances of a MkIII reunion and said it had "a snowball's chance in hell".... Ian Paice already has a job".
He also said how well he thought Blackmore was playing now (whether you like it is another matter he said) and they have talked about working together.
The gig really caught fire in the second part with a haunting “Soldier of Fortune” – introduced as “written by my friends Richie Blackmore and David Coverdale, or at least they were my friends” and a humorous dig about arranging it but not getting any royalties!
He finished with Child In Time, which by all accounts was brilliant
