I’d be remiss if I didn’t note with sadness the passing of Jon Lord, keyboard player for Deep Purple. There were many incarnations of Deep Purple, but to me the only one that mattered was the Machine Head/Made in Japan lineup of Ian Gillian on vocals, Ritchie Blackmore on guitar, Roger Glover on bass, Jon Lord on keyboards, and Ian Paice on drums. When I was about 13, our family got our first stereo, and one of the first albums we owned (I think it was my brother’s) was Made in Japan, which I listened to incessantly. Those keyboard riffs are burned into my mind. Safe truckin’, Jon.
