The co-founder and keyboardist for Deep Purple, the Grand Master of keyboards, Jon Lord passed away yesterday.

John Lord

A versatile player that covers anything from classical to hard rock. He co-wrote many of Deeep Purple’s hits such as the iconic rock theme ~ Smoke On The Water. He also contributed his talents to various other projects as a session musician and is thought to have played piano on The Kinks’ hit You Really Got Me.

Prior to him, the Hammond organ was mostly used in churches. Jon Lord literally brought the Hammond organ into the rock scene and has since made it a sort of sound trademark for any rock music that incorporates a keyboard line in it. You gotta have a Hammond sound if you wanna go Classic Rock!

With a total of 150 million albums sold and thousands of live performances, Jon was still actively composing and writing materials to his last days. Rest in peace Jon.
