Jon Lord Battles Cancer
Former Deep Purple keyboard player Jon Lord has revealed that he’s fighting cancer.
In a message on his website, the celebrated keyboard master says:
“I would like all my friends, followers, fans and fellow travellers 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.”
