Some sources refer to the different versions of Mark 2 as new incarnations each time, and therefore number the versions sequentially ie. Mk 2 in 1984 then becomes Mk 5 and so on. You work it out! I still prefer the other method.

Don Airey played keyboards during the European Tour in August & September 2001, due to Jon Lord having had a knee operation. Jon announced his retirement in March 2002 and Don Airey was confirmed as his permanent replacement.
