  5. Thanks Jon.
    Thanks for your wonderful music
    It’s food for the soul

  6. Music is a path leading to the Gods. Unfortunatelly the route our civilization has taken makes this path difficult to follow. What Jon Lord does is to keep this path visible and negotiable for me.

    Happy New Year Jon. Thank you very much for the amazing music you give me all these years. I hope to see you soon in Greece.

  8. You HAVE to release the video of the Concerto as a DVD No excuses Please, Please, Please
