Celebrating Jon Lord DVD


So I got the Jon Lord dvd.
Watched the whole thing with a lump in my troath.
The highlights for me were One From The Meadow (great version sung by Margo Buchanan. I didn't know her but she has an amazing voice), Fantasia (great to hear it live, although Neil Murry didn't play it very tight) and the MarkIII songs (performed very well by everyone).
The Purple set was a little bit of a let down for me, Gillan struggling with some high notes and it looked like Steve had problems with his wrist and didn't play as smoothly as he used to.
Overall it's a great DVD. A very special night well captured

It's guaranteed it will not chart here in the USA because he had too much talent. He could actually play his musical instruments and there was no lip synching.

I remember Steve Lukather pissing off many American readers of Guitar Player by saying Americans do not appreciate a musician who can actually play.

He was right Rezi. People nowadays want a Performer, not a musician. If they can lip synch to a song and move around onstage (and make outrageously stupid comments), they will be a big smash hit.

When I met him I reminded him of that comment, he cringed a little and laughed. I told him I agreed 100%...talent goes virtually unnoticed in this country. Its sad.

Nah, it's the same here. The only difference might be the tradition of European art music - classical - which might be more integrated to culture in general whereas due to America being a country founded on emigration art music might have bit more elitistic side about it.

EDIT: One inspired rebuttal Lukather got: "wear long sleeves over those silly tattoos. Play golf. Buy a boat. Go away." emoticon

Yeah Dog, though the division between rock and pop was born in the 1960s and that point you made was there from then on.
