Has Jon Lord followed the work of other "well known" rock/ jazz organists?


Notice I said "organists" and not "keyboardists", as I think the term "keyboardist" is overused and opens up the pandora's box to include too many other keyboard instruments.

As for Purple fans, I believe it was his work on Hammond Organ that gained him his notoriety, more than his work on piano...and since it is his Hammond personna that I have always had the keener interest in, I'm curious whether he has met, befriended, or at least has known of and respected these other noted Hammond Organ players:

(Mr. Lord, if you yourself care to comment on this question I would of course be most honored)

On the rock side:

STEVE WINWOOD
KEITH EMERSON
ROD ARGENT
GOLDY McJOHN
LEE MICHAELS
BILLY PRESTON
JOHN PAUL JONES
RICK WAKEMAN
JERRY CORBETTA
GREG ROLLIE
TOM COSTER


(Can't remember their names, but the organists for: )
Vanilla Fudge
Tower of Power
Uriah Heep


On the jazz side

JIMMY SMITH (goes without saying he admired him greatly, but did he ever get to meet him?)
JIMMY McGRIFF
CHARLES EARLAND
CAPTAIN JACK McDUFF
DR. LONNIE SMITH
JOEY DeFRANCESCO
(it should be noted here that Joey has been quoted as saying he's an admirer of Jon Lord's work on organ-- something that you generally don't see-- a jazz player paying a complement to a rock player)

Along with Alexis Korner and John Mayall he was the most influential musician of the Rhytm´n´Blues scene of London in the mid 60s and one of the most influential organ players.

His most known for his Graham Bond Organisation in which many a career of world famous musicians was born. John McLaughlin, Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, Dick Heckstall-Smith and Jon Hiseman to name a few.
He´s also known for discovering and and pushing The Animals to stardom.

He died mysteriously in 1974(said to be overun by a subway train under the influence of heroin, told you it was mysterious). And reminds one of the greatest personas in british music to this day.

He's also very well known for his involvement with the occult.

He met me once! emoticon or should that be I met him and the delightful Mrs Lord, backstage after a show once.

Talking of Alexis Korner, I was lucky enough to jam with him and his band when they played a now long since defunct local jazz venue. I played an old piano and the guitarist in the band I was in at the time played harmonica on a couple of blues numbers. What a night and what a gent he was (there's not many of us left) and I think Colin Hodgkinson - later of Whitesnake fame was on bass.

I have fond memories of that night - he is sadly missed.

Great, happy hammond... but I'm a bit confused now. Who is it actually talking, are you appearing in cognito at the forum? emoticon Have you ever played with Lord?

I'm me, not him! There are links to my band under the musicians section - if only I'd had an opportunity to play with the great man...sigh.
