    RIP Jon Lord. The keyboardist for Deep Purple, for those of you who don't know, and possibly the greatest rock keys of all time. Passed away sometime this morning, I'm trying to find a link. In the meantime, here's some of his awesome music.

    We have lost several great musicians this year, sad. "Lazy" was one of the great recordings of the era and, unfortunately overshadowed by "Smoke on the Water" on the same album (Machine Head) I always felt they could have used it as the "front song" on another album if they had held it back for a while.

    He was a Monster on stage.
    I remember seeing him rock that piano and organ everytime he hit a note, literally he pushed it accross the stage when he played.
    Mosters of Rock 87 at the Zepplin Feld in Munich.
    The only thing that was more electric was the LSD laced Wine Bota's being passed through the crowd.

    In addition to his fame as a rock musician, Lord composed orchestral music in his later years that has received very positive reviews. He said he learned to play classical music as a child and always had a love for it.

    Some of his works has been played on our local classical station, KVOD. I liked the few of his orchestral works I've heard quite a bit and found them a nice change of pace from the usual classical radio fare.

    Here is a link to an article about his "Durham Concerto".
