Deep Purple - Founding Member Jonathan Douglas "Jon" Lord Passes Away Aged 71


Sadly, we have to announce the passing of Jon Lord, former keyboard player of Deep Purple, who suffered a fatal pulmonary embolism today, Monday 16th of July, at the London Clinic, after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

Jonathan Douglas "Jon" Lord co-wrote many of the band's legendary songs including "Smoke On The Water" and played with many bands and musicians throughout his career, including Whitesnake, but he retired from Deep Purple in 2002. Lord was also a celebrated composer. Since retiring from Deep Purple, Lord released two classical albums: Durham Concerto (2008) and To Notice Such Things (2010).

OK. I apologize if my non-joke offended or seemed inappropriate to anybody.


You have nothing to apologize tbh. I personally found it funny and I know I'm not the only one.

I agree, but that joke just seemed inappropriate, wrong joke at the wrong place and time, that's all. My opinion...


Okay, you are now fucking overreacting. Looking like a complete douche who thinks that you're the only fan of Jon. And tbh that was a great joke. Boo-hoo!


Maybe I did overreact but so did you; so I thought it was a joke a wrong time and place, it's just my opinion, can't I say what I think?

I guess I respect and love Jon Lord and Deep purple too much to think such a joke is OK (on this thread).

As others have said, there's really nothing to be upset about here. Especially considering how inoffensive the joke was.

I honestly apologize if I upset anyone with my complaint, it was not my intention.

Sad news. At least he was at an age that it's normal to die, and not only 30 or 40.

They shake your hand and they smile and they buy you a drink
They say we'll be your friends we'll stick with you till the end
But everybody's only looking out for themselves
And you say who can you trust I'll tell you nobody

What a legend. His work on Highway Star remains my favourite keyboard part ever.
