Five Jon Lord Videos That Prove His Legacy
To celebrate the life of Deep Purple legend Jon Lord, Metal Hammer have selected five videos to "show just how damn awesome he was." It's a great choice of videos, so we're presenting them here just incase you didn't realise what an impact his talent and grace had on rock and metal through the ages. Jon died on Monday after suffering a pulmonary embolism a common side effect of the pancreatic cancer he had been battling since last year. Tributes had been pouring in from rock legends like Slash, Geezer Butler and Tom Morello, all of who cite him as an inspiration and one of the great musicians of the 20th century. You can read more about Jon's amazing life and career in our obituary from Tuesday, but in the meanwhile, check out these videos to see for yourself why he was such an influence on rock culture.
If you can find other fantastic Jon Lord performances, be sure to share a link for others in the comments.
