R.I.P. My favourite song is "Perfect Strangers". I love the way he played the keyboards in that song. Also a very nice video showing how the song was produced. Unfortunately I cannot watch it here in Germany but only if I am abroad.

RIP to a keyboard great. Most people wouldn't realize that the "heavy metal organ" sound in GarageBand and on pretty much all other digital keyboards/software is an attempt to recreate Jon lord's signature b3/Leslie/Marshall sound. I've been playing "child in time" on my GarageBand organ all morning.
