Wednesday Video: From darkness into light – Jon Lord

John Lord 1941-2012
R.I.P.

Jon Lord, founder of Deep Purple, died yesterday at age 71 of pancreatic cancer. He was the co-writer of “Smoke on the Water”. The version I’m posting here in tribute is from a live performance at the Albert Hall, together with the London Symphony Orchestra, in celebration of Deep Purple’s thirty years of shaping rock music world.
