Deep Purple's Jon Lord dies at age 71
LONDON (AP) — British rocker Jon Lord, the keyboardist whose powerful, driving tones helped turn Deep Purple and Whitesnake into two of the most popular hard rock acts in a generation, died Monday. He was 71.
A statement on Lord's official website says the Leicester, England-born musician suffered a fatal pulmonary embolism* in London after a long battle with pancreatic cancer*.
"Jon passed from Darkness to Light," the statement said.
Lord co-wrote some of Deep Purple's most famous tunes, including "Smoke on the Water," and later had a successful solo career following his retirement from the band in 2002. The statement posted on Lord's website said he died "surrounded by his loving family."
