Jon Douglas Lord was an English Hammond organ and piano player. He was born in Leicester on 9 June 1941 and died on 16 July 2012. He began to play professionally in 1966. Lord was a member of Deep Purple, Whitesnake, Paice, Ashton & Lord, The Artwoods, and Flowerpot Men.
He is recognized for combining rock and classical music. In 1968, Lord co-founded Deep Purple, the band he was most well-known for. Lord and the drummer, Ian Paice, were the only constant band members for 34 years. He left Deep Purple after their UK tour in 2002, and was replaced with Don Airey.
Lord had been considering leaving the band for some time, due to his busy touring schedule and his Durham Concerto. In 2001, Don Airey was used to substitute him for a month after a knee injury. This worked out, so Lord decided to leave in 2002. Lord was well-respected for his mastery of the Hammond Organ. ...show less
