RIP: Deep Purple founder Jon Lord has died today at the age of 71

It read: 'It is with deep sadness we
announce the passing of Jon Lord, who suffered a fatal pulmonary
embolism today, Monday 16th July at the London Clinic, after a long
battle with pancreatic cancer.'
Last
year, Lord told fans he was 'fighting cancer and will therefore be
taking a break from performing while getting the treatment and cure'.

In
a message on his website dated August 9, 2011, he added: '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.'

Lord started playing the piano in his family home and took classical music lessons before turning to jazz and rock 'n' roll.

A true great who will be sorely missed.

A large part of my largely miss-spent youth was directly attributable to his creativity!
