« This was put together with my own money and my own time and it’s been offered to television networks and to syndication and it has been steadfastly rejected by the American television industry. It has been shown in primetime in France and Switzerland, with marvelous results. It’s probably one of the finest pieces of video work that any human being has ever done. I did it myself. And the animation that you’re gonna see in this was done by a guy named Bruce Bickford, and I hope he is watching the show, because it’s probably the first time that a lot of people in America got a chance to see it. »

RIP Jon Lord indeed. A amazing, talented musician and great man. He’ll be very much missed…may he RIP and riff away in heaven on the synthesizers and pipe organs up there. . Jon took rock to another level – he made keyboard work an art form. And FZ & JFK, now that would be a conversation to be in on! 🙂


Frank had such a fertile, creative mind, all this social media would be a very strong catalyst for him growing as an artist. He would have no doubt done entire albums on it, and then used it as a means to get his music out. His sense of humor would have kept it all real too 🙂 I miss his unique view and voice.
