“Deep Purple is a damn good band and we’ve made a niche in rock ‘n’ roll history. Maybe not a huge one but enough to be very proud of.”
– Jon Lord
Jon Lord (1941 – 2012) was the co-founder of Deep Purple and a great musician.
Here is a great concert with Deep Purple in New York from 1973. Ian Paice on drums is fantastic (and the rest of the band)
