R.I.P.

For those of you who don't know, he was the keyboard player in Deep Purple. He single-handedly turned the organ into a hard-rock instrument, and any rock or metal band using keyboards today owes some credit to him.

I did say 'hard' rock, didn't I?

I also said 'organ', didn't I?

He has shaped my life. Him and Keith Emerson have given me the love of rock keyboard that I will have for the rest of my life. I will always love deep purple. I will always love keyboard. Thank you John Lord. You will be missed. May your keyboard rock in heaven as it did on this earth.
