okay. so i’ve had my head up my ass

I did not know that one of the most influential musicians and Hammond players of all time had passed away this past July.  In fact passed away on my daughter’s birthday to be creepy about it.

For many, Jon Lord WAS Deep Purple (expect for those guitar freaks…just kidding). A single listen to any of the DP albums - FireballMachine Head, WDWTWA and Made in Japan - featuring what I thought was the best DP lineup  and there was no question about the contribution he made to the band, in writing and playing.  He was one of the best.

ahhh…the 70s  (the REAL 70s)

  1. Up your ass? Maybe in the sand. I think there’s much more to see in the GI tract!

    RIP Jon Lord, It’s been a bad year for music.
