Even deaths of musicians you love come unexpectedly, I was more saddened than I thought.

Jon was a musical genius and a wonderful human being. Pure class. May he be remembered forever. (I don't use the word 'genius' lightly)

Very saddening, and very unexpected. I had just started to get into his classical works a few months ago and I was excited for more. One of the few true giants of rock organ and the only non-progressive one who could match with the likes of Emerson and Wakeman. RIP Mr. Lord.

Herbs, I also love this list, but it's currently the most inactive one on the whole site.

This is one of the lists that doesn't need any changes at all. It's just absolutely perfect.
