    I can’t believe it’s been a year.

    I never new Jon or even met him, but through listening to his music, either with Purple or his solo material. I almost feel I did know him in away. I know it sounds weird but that’s the way it feels.

    It was said about the late great BUDDY RICH and It can definitely be said about Jon. “We will never see his like again”

    Thank Jon RIP

    Fantastic!
    Great production work and superb presentation by Rick Wakeman.
    It surely helps us all to deal with the sad fact that Jon passed a year ago and is a beautiful hommage to a great musician and personality extraordiaire.

    Henrik @ 12 – Yes, there were a selection of Wakeman interviews with a variety of artists. Each show was about 50 minutes or so, I forget what they were called. Only a couple of years ago, I watched the Tony Iommi, Jon Lord & Ian Anderson shows. They were great! Cheers.
