David Coverdale Tributes Deep Purple Bandmate Jon Lord

(hennemusic) Whitesnake leader and former Deep Purple vocalist David Coverdale has released a new video eulogy tribute to keyboardist Jon Lord.

The pair were Purple bandmates from 1973-76 in versions known as "Mark III" and "Mark IV" of the group's lineup.

Lord passed away July 16 at the age of 71 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

Coverdale speaks fondly of his friend and remembers his first meetings with Jon - supporting Purple, joining Purple and rehearsing for the "Burn" album.

The legendary keyboard player co-wrote many of the band's legendary songs, including "Smoke On The Water," and played with many bands and musicians throughout his career. Watch the tribute here.
