Former DEEP PURPLE keyboardist Jon Lord has released the following statement via his official web site, JonLord.org:

"I would like all my friends, followers, fans and fellow travelers to know that I am fighting cancer and will therefore be taking a break from performing while getting the treatment and cure.

"I shall, of course, be continuing to write music in my world it just has to be part of the therapy and I fully expect to be back in good shape next year.

"God bless and see you soon."

Shit really sucks. I really like Deep Purple. Hopefully he beats this.

Horrible news. Easily one of the, if not the most influential keyboard player or his era. :(

Atleast in my opinion I think he was the most influential keyboard player of his time. There's probably debates on if he was or not but he would have my vote.

Hope he didn't pull a Dio on this... Wait till it was too far along before going to the doctor.

Granted, Dio didn't KNOW he had something wrong with him.
