That's Bob Welch. Bob Weston and Bob Brunning of Fleetwood Mac all gone in the past few months.

Crikey. I didn't know Bob Brunning had also died. Really gutted about Welch (and Weston to a lesser extent) - the mid-period Mac contains some of my favourites. In my more contrary moments, I'll say Future Games is my favourite of their LPs, though the title track will always be a top five of their complete catalogue no matter my mood. Weston also made some fine, fine guitar work, my favourite being The City. The interplay between the two Bobs on that is magic.

A man killed after a stage collapsed ahead of a Radiohead concert in Canada has been named as Scott Johnson, a drum technician, from South Yorkshire. He worked with several bands and was well-liked.

Just got the very sad news that Deep Purple keyboard legend Jon Lord died today after a long illness...it was a privilege to see his masterwork Deep Purple's Concerto For Group and Orchestra re-enacted in 1999 at The Royal Albert Hall, one of the most memorable concerts I've ever been to...RIP Jon !

How sad. I was never a great fan of Deep Purple, but Mr Lord was certainly a great keyboard player.

RIP Jon.

I know he had been ill.....RIP to the man responsible for a substantial loss of my hearing over a 48 hour span (I seem to recall), and whose talent made me a huge fan of all things Hammond organ as the years have gone by. He really was a superb musician and seemed like such a decent guy to boot.

Sad to hear this. He was 1/5 of what was probably one of the greatest rock bands ever. Everyone of my age could come out with the classic lineup of Gillan/Glover/Lord/Paice/Blackmoor. I think my old vinyl copy of made in japan will be out tonight.

Am glad at least that I got to see them live.

RIP Jon

Very sad news. His keyboards were an absolutely essential part of the classic Deep Purple sound -  and he always came over as an incredibly nice guy in interviews, too.

Never a Deep Purple fan, but loved classic era Whitesnake.
Saw them live several times, great shame.

Actually one of my favorites featuring him is First Day Jam...which appeared on the Who Do We Think We Are remaster from a few years back....just him, Paice and Blackmore on bass. One could hear his ability in that one, on top of all the other usual places-Space Truckin, the intro to Lazy, the classical technique worked into Highway Star....great stuff. I loved hat unlike his contemporaries he did very little noodling around with synths and piano....he will always be the Hammond guy to me

Machine Head was their -and his - finest work and it would never have been the monster it was without Jon.

I'll raise a glass of red to him tonight.

Have just heard about Jon Lord. Very sad. I liked Purple when I was growing up but of more significance to me at the time was a record that I picked up for peanuts on a market stall in Croydon when I was about 12. "First Of The Big Bands" was an album Jon Lord made with the late Tony Ashton in about 1974. Hardly anyone has ever heard of it and it sank without trace but I loved it from the moment I first heard it and I love it still having worn out two vinyl copies and finally acquired a digital download. I also liked the follow up which brought Ian Paice into the band.

Kudos to Mr Lord too for coaxing Annifrid Lyngstad out of retirement a few years ago for her last recorded vocal to date and the only one in English for more than 20 years.

He was by all accounts a gentleman and a great and influential musician.

I was a bit young to appreciate Deep Purple first time round but did see them on the Perfect Strangers tour and also saw Jon with Whitesnake round about the same time. Definitely one of my favourite keyboard players so this is very sad news. Just listening to his playing on Child in Time - sublime.

I think the second gig I ever saw was Deep Purple in 1972 (the first being Led Zeppelin the year before). Two great shows to start with . I saw Jon performing his Concerto for Group & orchestra at Liverpool Phil a couple of years ago - which was really good when heard live with a proper orchestra. He will be sadly missed.
