Together with his friends in Deep Purple he was one of the founders of the hardrock genre.

He was a pioneer in the mixing of classical and rock music.

His distinct and powerful sound forever changed the way in which we view the Hammond organ.

And on top of this, and despite all his success he remaind a humble gentleman.

Thank you for all your wonderful music Mr. Lord. R.I.P.

As I am writing this on my phone it will be a very short post. But I encourage all of you to pay tribute to this great man.

We had a lot of luck on Venus
We always had a ball on Mars
Meeting all the groovey people
We've rocked the Milky Way so far
We danced around with Borealice
We're space truckin' round the the stars

Come on...
Come on...
Let's go space trucking.

Come on...
come on...
Space Truckin'

Awesome song that rocks like crazy.Always think of this song whenever I see the game Galaxy Trucker.

I'm a Speed King, you gotta hear me sing.

Fast forward to 2:50 to hear Jon Lord tickle the keyboard in a call and response routine with Ritchie Blackmore's guitar. Actually, no, you want to listen to the whole song. Was this really over 40 years ago? Oh, I feel old.

Upon their rebirth, I was a re-energized fan. Who didn't enjoy Knocking at your Back Door from Perfect Strangers?

Followed by House of the Blue Light, Mr. Lord was in amazing form.

Mr. Lord was the counterweight to Blackmore's oversized ego. A quiet, extremely talented musician and band member. Always content to kick ass on the keys while Ritchie got the spotlight.

This was always one of my favorites. First concert I ever went to in fact, during the Perfect Strangers tour.

This vid starts with a terrific close up of Jon Lord's fingers on the organ.

I swore he was going to kill himself and dump that Hammond on top of himself the way it rocked so madly back and forth in concert.

One of the first bands I listened to religiously, along with Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath. When I bought my first real stereo system, the first album I played on it was DP's "Made in Japan," cranked way, way up, and promptly blew out my amplifier.

RIP Mr. Lord.

Good intentions are no substitute for a good education.
mbmbmbmbmb
Not many seem to be aware that Jon Lord had an education in classical music, and did attempt to combine classical and modern music in three symphonic works. His first attempt, the Concerto for Group and Orchestra, is not that interesting, but his "Gemini Suite" and "Sarabande" are both great works.

Here are two excepts which I personally like a lot, but as the works contain a variety of experiments, you should really listen to their wholes.

The "Classic Albums" documentary series is out there on DVD, but it's extra-special accessible if you're a Netflix streaming subscriber, where most of the shows, including "Machine Head", are available. I found Jon Lord's contributions to the documentary to be the most valuable by far. Check it out.

The entire film is also on YouTube, but the only versions of it I saw were dubbed from a language I understand into languages that I don't.

Deep Purple were the first live band I saw (may 1974, my mum took me as I was too young to go on my own). They were the first grown up rock band I followed and though I abandoned them when Punk hit London I have recently been listening to their songs. RiP Jon, thanks for the music
