    Wait a while is a song I’ve had “problems” listening to without getting very wet eyes for as long as it’s been on cd.

    Jon truly was one of a kind. I’m thankful that he was blessed with enough time to finish his legacy – the Concerto. But like many other good people we still look up to, he died too young. After making millions of people so happy with his music, did he earn to pass away like that?! There is no award or hall of fame to honor people of his caliber.

    For weeks following Jon’s passing last year, I could not listen to anything in which he participated–Deep Purple or otherwise. Then, I came to realize that he would not have wanted it that way and slowly I was able to listen to his music once again.

    Like many of you on this website, it was Jon Lord–along with band mate Ritchie Blackmore–that inspired me to learn to play instruments. It was the former that piqued my interest in orchestral music, and even to try my hand at scoring an orchestra. The man was a huge influence in my life. I could never afford a B3, but I managed an M3 that resides in the guitar bunker. The tone cabinet evokes that heavy reverb (Jon pronounced it “ruh-vuhb”) reminiscent of the early days. The names “Hammond” and “Jon Lord” are synonymous.

    Dr. Lord was too humble to ever admit to his being a musical genius–but he was. Putting together the Concerto on the fly in that short amount of time was improbable. To compose something with that depth in that amount of time while recording In Rock and touring should have been impossible. The orchestra was under-rehearsed, and perhaps some were less than enthusiastic–but it was musical history. There are string passages in the second movement that are among the most memorable in music.

    His orchestral career was rather short, but the body of work will cement his name in history. Years from now, a young kid will discover the Concerto–as I did as a kid–and it will inspire him as it inspired me. I was just shy of five years old when the Concerto came out, and fifteen when I discovered it. At least my life overlapped it–I can say I was “there” in 1969–even if I wasn’t actually there at the Royal Albert Hall when the Concerto was performed.

    Thank-you, Jon…for all the years and all the music. I certainly would not be the person I am today without you.
