More About Celebrating Jon Lord - Hero of the Keys
Encouraged by his father, this classically-influenced rocker began playing the piano at the age of 5 and the German composer Bach, in particular, would become a huge source of inspiration for him. It was after forming Deep Purple in 1968 that the much-admired musician began to demonstrate his experimental nature, driving a Hammond organ through Marshall speakers in order to prevent his keyboard being drowned out by the guitar. This became a signature sound for the group with the distortion soaked results propelling the band to stardom.
He decided to pursue his classical roots again and the BBC stepped in to commission his fusion side project Gemini Suite backed by the London Symphony Orchestra, which garnered his 1972 debut album. During his illustrious career, this celebrated musician continued to blur the lines between music genres and collaborated with everyone from Whitesnake to ABBA superstar Frida. Today, modern rock bands like Metallica, Audioslave and Rage Against the Machine cite this trailblazer as a huge source of inspiration.
