    Jon Douglas Lord was an English Hammond organ and piano player. He was born in Leicester on 9 June 1941 and died on 16 July 2012. He began to play professionally in 1966.

    He was a member of Deep Purple, Whitesnake, Paice, Ashton & Lord, The Artwoods, and Flowerpot Men, but he also worked as a solo artist. He is recognized for combining rock and classical music.

    In 1968, Jon co-founded Deep Purple, the band he was most well-known for. Jon and the drummer, Ian Paice, were the only constant band members for 34 years. He left Deep Purple after their UK tour in 2002, and was replaced with Don Airey.

    Jon had been considering leaving the band for some time, due to his busy touring schedule and his Durham Concerto. In 2001, Don Airey was used to substitute him for a month after a knee injury. This worked out, so Jon decided to leave in 2002.

    Jon is well-respected for his mastery of the Hammond Organ. Some call him "Lord of the Hammond", and in his 34-year Deep Purple career, you can hear his distinctive solos amid many classic songs on their albums.

    Jon died at July 16 2012, at the age of 71, after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.
