Former Deep Purple keyboard player Jon Lord, one of the group's founding members who left in 2002, has announced that he has been diagnosed with cancer. A message from Lord reads as follows:
"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, Jon."
Lord's webmaster added: "May we also, at Jon’s request, ask if everyone could please respect his need for privacy so that he can spend time with his family (and his music). Thank you."
