Glenn has been on a plane all day, returning from a string of gigs in Eastern Europe and Israel, and was unaware of the sad news of Jon Lord’s passing earlier today. Soon after his arrival back home, he issued a brief statement:
Friends : I have just landed in LA from London, to hear the sad news of the passing of our brother Jon Lord.
I will miss him.
Glenn, Joe Bonamassa and producer, Kevin Shirley were in the Studio today and they will be joined by the remaining band members, Jason Bonham and Derek Sherinian tomorrow and throughout the rest of this week.
No release date for the resulting album is currently scheduled, but don’t be surprised if it’s available well before Christmas!!
And its goodnite from me : its FULL ON BCC WEEK… its PURE ROCK
