One of the draw backs of being old(er) is witnessing the deaths of those that brought you joy and comfort in earlier years. One of the best keyboarders in the business passed away.
Many bands get by with a good singer and a stand out guitarist, Deep Purple sported great musicians at every instrument. Some have blessed Ritchie Blackmore as the best guitarist ever but I always thought Jon’s keyboarding went all way in giving them personality. Their Made In Japan live LP is one of the best live performances you can find.
RIP Jon Lord
