It is with a heavy heart that I write that Jon Lord, keyboardist of Deep Purple, has passed away at the age of 71. He passed away after suffering from a pulmonary embolism. He had been in the hospital battling pancreatic cancer. His family was by his side.
The official Deep Purple Facebook page wrote, “We are all deeply saddened by the news that Jon Lord has passed away today at the age of 71 after suffering a pulmonary embolism. He had been suffering from pancreatic cancer and was surrounded by his family at the London Clinic. Our most heartfelt sympathies go to his family. Jon Lord, a giant among men.”
Lord was one of the founding members of Deep Purple and a member during the infamous “Smoke On The Water” and “Child In Time” days.
My deepest condolences to his family and to the members of Deep Purple. The world lost a truly magnificent musician today and he shall be sorely missed.
