Jon looking down…

UPDATE – it is a montage, and was done by David Plaisance, thanks to him for letting us show it.

If you missed it (and we did), BBC Radio 4 have extracts from what they say was Jon Lord’s last ever interview available. Rock and Roll in Four Movements was first aired in August 2012 and talked to four rock musicians involved in the rock and classics movement; Rick Wakeman, Keith Emerson, Roy Wood (instead of Procul Harum? Strange) and Jon.  It only runs for half an hour and is fronted by the ubiquitous Stuart Maconie (there is a great spoof on the ever busy Stuart ‘outsourcing his recollection quotes to China’ in the curent issue of Viz). It’s on the BBC iPlayer now. No rush, it’s available until August 2099 in fact.

Jon looking down

Talking of Jon, someone sent us this shot they found recently. I don’t know if this is for real, ie. they’re doing a slide projection, or if it’s just a photoshop montage, but we did find it kind of touching. Hope we’re Ok to post it, let me know if it’s your work so we can credit.

      Nice one David, hope it’s OK to use. I’ll add a credit.

    • Alex Says:

      It could be misconstrued though. It almost looks like Jon’s looking down at Don and thinking “Who is this mere mortal in my place!”
