RIP Jon Lord (Deep Purple)

Deep Purple founding member and keyboardist, Jon Lord, died yesterday at the age of 71. The hard rocking sounds of Deep Purple inspired many heavy metal acts of the late 1960s and early 1970s. The first song I've selected is 'Hush' and Lord's keyboard solo is incredible.

You can't mention Deep Purple without some 'Smoke on the Water'.

If you don't know the story behind 'Smoke on the Water' then check out the clip below.
