Der ehemalige DEEP PURPLE Keyboarder Jon Lord der im Moment gegen den Krebs kämpft hat folgendes Statement veröffentlicht:
"Happy New Year to all of you and thank you so much for your wonderful, kind and inspirational messages over these last few difficult months.
I have been mightily sustained by reading them and will continue to be so.
You are a very special lot indeed. I am doing well and I will be back with more news and updates in the next week or so.
In the meantime, party hearty but look after yourselves. I wish you success and happiness, and above all, I wish you health."
Hoffen wir das beste!
