  2. Hello, Jon. I am from Argentina and I am 18 years old. I am a total fanatic of Purple and of course of all your beautiful music.
    I could never see Deep Purple, in the shows they gave to my country (If with Don Airey). For that reason, I want fervently you to come to my country and that you meet again definitively with Purple.

    Sorry for my ennglish!!


    Chau! Nos vemos!

  4. I was fortunate to see Deep Purple in 2001 in Bangalore, India. Jon Lord was amazing that night. We in India miss your music with Purple, Jon.

  5. HI Jon,

    You are the most inspiring, prolific musician on this entire planet, truly you have made my life better with your incredible life’s work. My husband took me to see you in Toronto with Purple in the 80’s (he saw you many times before) and I was exhilerated for an entire year! This past birthday, my husband brought me home some Purple records (London Symphony),and a DVD that you guys shot in Germany, what a romantic night! I love Sarabande and all your compositions. I am a musician and it doesn’t matter what era of music you have recorded; listening to your playing (just got the CD of Slaves and Masters) – just floors me everytime! So glad your writing continues to be prolific, love the fact you are following your heart with all your new and wonderful work, as you have truly opened mine!

  6. Jon: I have no words to describe your achievements as a musician, you created your own style that was a guiding light for many young and older musicians;your music stands no matter if is 1968 or 1972 or even 2008
    still shines like if you just wrote it, the admiration that I have and I’m shure many others is
    incredible huge.Your music will never become an oldie.
    Please never stop writing.

    Dennis Arellano

  7. Jon,
    Thank you for everything. Pictured within remains the finest album ever made. Never has an album touched so many lives (and saved a few including my own). How can such an album be so moving yet so uplifting. Please Please Please. Can we have you on tour in Birmingham UK. Please play Symphony Hall. The acoustics are incredible, it would really enhance the music. And please include Krystal Spa.
    Again. Thanks you for everything. You will never understand how much you have touched so many peoples lives in such a positive way.
