Courtesy of the BBC News website, Jon Lord, the former keyboard player with rock band Deep Purple, has died aged 71. I have a feeling that I'll be giving Space Truckin' a 'blasting' tonight!

yes R.I.P. John

Saw him once on stage, the only time I've seen a Hammond organ quake in fear, and that was before he started playing it

I bought the vinyl album Made in Japan many years ago.

Deep Purple are still one of my all time favorite bands.

Another great musician gone to that great gig in the sky.
