Jon Lord: 1941-2012

I spent the last few weeks in vacation in Ibiza, visiting relatives (hence why I didn't post anything for a while) and just got back a few days ago to the terrible news that Jon Lord's life had been claimed by pancreatic cancer on July 16th. For those who don't know, Jon Lord was Deep Purple's legendary keyboardist and the true force behind their ear-shattering sound. His death shouldn't have come as too much of a shock as he'd been battling the disease since 2011, but is no less tragic then it would've been had it been sudden. RIP and God Bless you, Jon, and if there is a heaven you're in it.
