Ruhe in Frieden Jon !!
Deine Kondolenz nimmt die offiz. Jon Lord- Seite entgegen
Mick Box 16.7.2012 auf Facebook zum Tod von Jon Lord:
I was truly shocked to hear that Jon Lord 71, had passed away.
Jon was one of the all time great, rock keyboard players, and composers,
and he had the most amazing Hammond Organ sound ever.
I have known Jon for many years dating back to the late 60′s,
and he was always the perfect gentleman, and great company.
The musical world has lost a giant, and his contribution to rock music will live on… forever.
When people have asked me who was my favourite keyboard player,
his name was always first on my lips.
Our beloved Jon passed away on this day Monday 16th July 2012.
We have lost a dear friend, a brother and a wonderful musician.
His dignity and graciousness touched us all. His music was an inspiration and took us to places beyond our imagination…
A truly great man.
We humbly express our eternal love and great respect.
Personal message from Ritchie Blackmore about Jon Lord’s passing:
Jon was not only a great musician, he was my favorite dinner companion.
We are all deeply saddened.
We knew he was sick but the word was that he was recovering and doing much better.
This news came as a complete shock.
Without Jon there would be no Deep Purple.
He lives on in our hearts and memories.
