Jon Lord of DEEP PURPLE Diagnosed with Cancer

Former Deep Purple keyboardist Jon Lord has released the following statement on his official web site:

“I would like all my friends, followers, fans and fellow travelers to know that I am fighting cancer and will therefore be taking a break from performing while getting the treatment and cure.

I shall, of course, be continuing to write music — in my world it just has to be part of the therapy — and I fully expect to be back in good shape next year.

God bless and see you soon.”

Jon Lord is recognized for his Hammond organ blues-rock playing and unique sound and for his pioneering work in fusing rock and classical or baroque forms. He has most famously been a member of Deep Purple, the band he co-founded in 1968.
