wow.  truly sad news.  went over to his website, found he has been battling cancer since last August.  making it to 71 in the rock world is phenomenal.  gotta go find a recording of Child In Time and cry a little.   Cry

one of my favorite memories is seeing Deep Purple at Alpine 2nd Row for the Perfect Strangers tour, standing right in front of Jon Lord.  he had a huge hammond organ on a big pivot hinge and he swung that thing back and forth while he played, we were scared to death it was going to fall right off the stage and land on top of us.
