Hammond For hire and The Quik Beats at Artrix theatre

Jon Lord, his part in my downfall


That feeling of being floored by the death of someone you didn’t know. The first deep purple album I owned was In Rock. I bought it in Yugoslavia after hearing my uncle’s Come Taste The Band. By the time I was back in England I was playing my Grandad’s Bontempi organ every evening and after he upgraded and gave it to me, I would experiment by adding Ibanez Tube Screamers and cry baby wah-wah pedals to it.

28 years later and a Hammond owner since ’93 the death of Jon Lord, the reason why I started in the first place, leaves me more than a little empty.
