What about the cancer rumour?


This article is in Norweigan:

http://www.haugesunds-avis.no/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20050303/KULTUR/91846389

It states that Jon Lord "has cancer, but shows up at Deep Purple concerts on a regular basis"

Anyone heard about this cancer?

Dear All
I first heard about this article from Norway a couple of months ago. Number 1: I don't know who wrote it. Number 2: I don't know WHY they wrote it. Number 3: I don't know where they got their "info" from. Number 4: Their info is incorrect. Number 5: I have asked them to print a retraction.
Number 6: They haven't. Number 7: I am very well thankyou!!
Lotsa luv
Jon

#1: No surprise there, huh?


#2: To sell papers, Jon, what else?

#3: Evidently from out the writer's or someone else's arse. emoticon Where it was probably much better off remaining. emoticon

#4: Wonderful news!

#5: As well you should've.

#6: I take it you're not too, too shocked about that, are you? emoticon

#7: Again, absolutely wonderful to hear that!

Re: What about the cancer rumour?


This is at least the second thread about it(as Jon pointed out this was already a couple of months ago) and it has already pointed out as what it really is(rubbish).

Thanks Jon, for bringing this back to memory!

Now speak out against Classic Rock Productions. emoticon

Re: What about the cancer rumour?


The article opens like this, roughly translated:

"One Deep Purple Spring

The legendary hardrock group Deep Purple comes to Haugesund in May. Get ready for "Smoke On The Water"!

– Deep Purple is, along with Led Zeppelin og Black Sabbath, the three great british hardrock-groups from the 70's. A Deep Purple consert in Norway is always a happening, and a lot of fans will most sure come to Haugesund to see them, comments Thor Rune Haugen (49). ..."

***

The writer, Mr Roar E. Jacobsen, is obviously misinformed, both on Lord's health and on facts about previous Purple concerts in Norway. But it's otherwise a fine article. I don't believe he meant to spread false rumours, and far from it sell more papers that way. He give no source for the false cancer comment. God knows where he got it from. It's a small point in the article, but nevertheless not a thing you throw around if it's not true, maybe not even then.
