"It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Jon Lord, who suffered a fatal pulmonary embolism today, Monday 16 July at the London Clinic, after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Jon was surrounded by his loving family," a message on the website said.
We open the show with a tribute to Jon with Never Before and Kula Shaker's version of Hush.
As promised, since if I played this on the air it would offend some people's delicate sensibilities. But they can't control the blog! lol Besides the language is not that bad and it's too good not to be featured somewhere.
If you missed the free download of Two Door Cinema Club's new single Sleep Alone it's streaming on their Soundcloud page.
