RIP Jon Lord
The venerable master of the rock B3, Jon Lord died today of a "pulmonary embolism" at age 71. Needless to say, he will be missed. See here http://www.cnn.com/2012/07/16/showbiz/jon-lord-obit/index.html for details

best rock keyboard player around, one of the best rock groups ever.  Good thing I have all their albums,, he lives on through the great music they wrote and played.  RIP John "Lord" of the keyboards.

Good to see you started this thread.
I've been a follower of Jon Lord and his projects over the years and realized he cancelled some dates last year. He appeared at the beginning of this year and then disappeared again due to illness.
So sad that one of my heroes passed by now. Singin "Smoke On The Water" and play my organ like he did will never be the same now with this great loss in my mind

I second ULI's note: ...die Einschläge kommen näher...

RIP Jon (my) Lord

first album i ever bought was 'in rock', 2nd 'Made in Japan', so I am more fond of this version:

Wow! You guys picked my absolute fave Deep Purple song - (how many times I played "air guitar" to that tune while diming the volume knob and pissing off my neighbors back in the day....)
