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).

I was actually thinking the exact same thing when IU read it

And imo such a joke should be possible.

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

I respect and love the work of Jon Lord and Deep Purple immensely and I really don't see a problem with such a little joke. But then again imo it is alright to make non-harsh jokes about death. Hell, when my mum died last year I found it okay to make some jokes about it, as did my dad and most of my relatives.

Because detah is part of life and nothing sacred, there is no such thing as sacred when it comes to life and death.

Joking about death is a way to deal with grief.

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

The joke was hella tame tbh. If the dude had been murdered it would have been considered a "too soon" joke but nah...
Fredd - 20.07.2012 at 05:13  
OK. I apologize if my non-joke offended or seemed inappropriate to anybody.

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!

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

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?

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.

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