Rolling Stone on Jon Lord - September 24th, 1999


We all know that James Brown is the hardest working man in show business, but there needs to me more acknowledgement of the fella at the other end of the spectrum -- the absolute laziest man in rock 'n' roll. And after a long and tortuous competition, we've found the lucky laggard -- none other than DEEP PURPLE's JON LORD. The keyboardist forged what may have been the first rock/classical bond back in 1969 when he penned "Concerto for Group and Orchestra," which he and his Purple pals performed just twice -- because Lord misplaced the only existing copy of the full score and couldn't be bothered to re-create it. Thirty years after the fact, an obsessive (not to mention hobby-less) Dutch music student named Mario de Goiej came to Lord with a made-from-scratch rendition of the score that he'd cobbled together from countless airings of audio and videotapes of one of the aforementioned performances. To celebrate the occasion, Purple will convene with the London Symphony Orchestra this weekend (Saturday and Sunday) to test-drive de Goiej's score. We'll assume the l'il Dutch Boy is on the guest list...

I'm not sure how Jon could get a "lazy" title because he didn't recreate the concerto,it wasn't like he was sitting home watching tv all those years.

And i think that if Jon had done the work on the re-write, he would not have found
it so easy to stick to the original. After all, it was of a moment in his life, and
easier to directly copy than to put his mind back all those years, but all the
influences and mind set would have changed.

 I just thought it was very telling that when Rolling Stone finally decided to acknowledge anything about or anyone involved with Deep Purple as being the "-st" of anything to do with music they'd give it as negative a connotation as possible.
 Typical of that pretentious, self-serving not-fit-to-be-birdcage-lining rag. emoticon

I think they've just tried to play with words (I mean "Lazy" from "Machine head")

Consider the source. Rolling Stone magazine picked Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone" as the greatest rock song of all time. Now THAT"S lazy. They've been a useless and boring publication for a long time.

 Roughly 3 decades - give or take a couple of years - of generally pretty boring uselessness, Dog. emoticon

I have nothing nice to say about Rolling Stone Magazine. Jan Weeeeener.....or whatever that f*** face's name is would serve society better if he were a paper weight instead of a publisher.

I for the life of me can't figure out where the negativity toward DP began or how it began. (Anyone care to enlighten me?)

And to call that inept vocalist who couldn't carry a tune with 6 handles, much less one-- Bob Dylan-- the creator of the "best rock song ever", just floors me to no end.

Christ Almighty....don't even get me started.
