Vintage 1984: Remembering Jon Lord


Jon Lord passed away four years ago today.

To honour and remember Jon today we invite you on a bit of time travel. In early 1984 Jon was special guest on the BFBS Monday Rock Show with Jon Bennett.

With Whitesnake, Jon had just released the Slide It In album, so the interview includes talk about this and the Deep Purple reunion, which hadn’t been announced yet Jon expresses surprise at how often talk of a Deep Purple reunion came up – and much more.

Revered not just for his work with Deep Purple and Whitesnake, Jon’s Bach Onto This also served as theme music for this show.

Go back in time and listen to the full 55 minute radio show here and remember the good times.
