What is it with musicians dying this year? RIP Jon Lord

Jon Lord (http://jonlord.org/) yesterday lost his battle with pancreatic cancer.

Lord was a founder of Deep Purple and wrote many of the band's iconic songs, including "Smoke on the Water," as well as playing keyboards and being possibly the best Hammond Organ player rock and roll ever saw.

and here he is in 1993:
