A couple of weeks ago, former Deep Purple keyboardist Jon Lord was diagnosed with cancer.
Lord issued the following message on the matter: "I would like all my friends, followers, fans and fellow travelers to know that I am fighting cancer and will therefore be taking a break from performing while getting the treatment and cure.
I shall of course be continuing to write music - in my world it just has to be part of the therapy - and I fully expect to be back in good shape next year."
