http%3A%2F%2Foran.ge%2FSBECMW&layout=button_count&locale=en_GB&node_type=link&sdk=joey&send=false&show_faces=false&width=90" rel="nofollow - Deep Purple rocker Jon Lord has lost his battle with cancer at the age of 71.

http%3A%2F%2Foran.ge%2FSBECMW&layout=button_count&locale=en_GB&node_type=link&sdk=joey&send=false&show_faces=false&width=90" rel="nofollow - The keyboard player was diagnosed with a tumour in his pancreas in 2011 and he headed to Israel in February to undergo specialist treatment. Lord was due to make his live comeback at a show in Hagen, Germany earlier this month, but had to postpone the gig due to poor health.

http%3A%2F%2Foran.ge%2FSBECMW&layout=button_count&locale=en_GB&node_type=link&sdk=joey&send=false&show_faces=false&width=90" rel="nofollow - A statement released at the time read: "Jon wishes to assure everyone that this is not a matter for concern, but it is a continuation of his regular treatment that has just taken longer than anticipated. He and the Hagen Philharmonic Orchestra hope to be able to reschedule the concert for later in the year."

http%3A%2F%2Foran.ge%2FSBECMW&layout=button_count&locale=en_GB&node_type=link&sdk=joey&send=false&show_faces=false&width=90" rel="nofollow - However, Lord's condition took a turn for the worse and he passed away on Monday at a private hospital in London.

http%3A%2F%2Foran.ge%2FSBECMW&layout=button_count&locale=en_GB&node_type=link&sdk=joey&send=false&show_faces=false&width=90" rel="nofollow - A post on his official website states: "It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Jon Lord, who suffered a fatal pulmonary embolism today, Monday 16th July at the London Clinic, after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Jon was surrounded by his loving family."

One of the best jazz/blues organ players who ever played in a rock band, Jon Lord's solos on the B3 have never been matched in the world of rock.

Listen to albums like:
"Made in Japan"
"Made in Europe"
"Deep Purple in Rock"

An inspirational player, the Hendrix of the B3, Lord was always quick to point out his influences and led many a young keyboard player to guys like Jimmy Smith, Jack McDuff, Brian Auger and Jimmy McGriff, Lord was also known to be a big fan of Miles Davis. Lord's use of the ring modualtor reflected his appreciation for Corea and Jarret's sonic noise onslaughts on Miles' "Live at the Fillmore".

I saw Deep Purple in Japan in 1993. The guitar player was already Joe Satriani, but there was not much sense of incongruity about ensemble. Because opening track was Highway Star, the excitement of the audience reached the top immediately. I remember Made in Japan immediately and always remember the experience as a memory. Jon always played the best. In every activity. RIP, Jon.

I'm glad I had the chance to see  him in concert in 2009

I think the problem with a lot of the fusion music is that it's extremely predictable, it's a rock rhythm and the solos all play the same stuff and they play it over and over again ...

^ Concerto for group and orchestra and a selection of his own compositions( 'Sarabande' for example) .He was accompanied by a symphonic orchestra(Bulgarian I think)
