So..... did they record this with Jon Lord? If not whose playing the organ this time around? Doesn't seem right for a Deep Purple album to not have him on it.
Doesn't look like it. They put the names of the current band members on top of the posted website, and I don't see Jon Lord anywhere. I assume that is also the list of people who worked on the album. Deep down, I hope Jon was included in here at least somewhere. For now, we can only hope.
