R.I.P. Jon Lord

Really sad news about the death of Jon Lord at 71. He was an absolute innovator in Hard Rock and Heavy Metal and as important a figure in the origins of the genre as it is possible to be. Here’s a snippet from the Classic Albums documentary on DP’s classic Machine Head album, where the band and Jon discuss his role and his amazing organ sound… The Beast!

  1. It’s weird to click “like” on this because I certainly do not like that you had to post this today. That Classic Albums disc is an absolute must for anyone curious about Jon Lord and his extremely intelligent musicality!
