Not bad at all.
Gminer what do you think of the organ on this track? Truly one of the most hypnotic tones of anyone I've ever heard...

That is simply the ultimate psychedelic album. Rick even has it at #1 on his list.

David Cohen on the organ surely never got the credit he deserved (as with most good organ players).

Alan Price of The Animals is another great one that hardly gets his just due.

I only have one album from Porcupine Tree and I can tell the guy is great.

Anyway, just thought I'd say that Manzarek is one of the most underrated musical geniuses in all of rock. Not a soloing beast like Emerson or Lord, but he's so much more concise and managed to come up with PERFECT accompaniment for whatever song the band played. His live improv was killer, and his tone and choice of notes were all his own.

In short, I just fuckin love Ray. Damn near as much as I love Jim...



The only reason Manzarek is so underrated is because of the vocalist he was backing.

Yah I agree. Jim was larger than life.

I've always felt that Jim and Ray were the most important elements to the band's sound.

Um... Why is David Rosenthal #62 (That's a bit high... I always thought his keyboards were perhaps the most disappointing part of that particular Rainbow line-up.) and Tony Carey isn't on the list?

That keyboard intro is incredible!

RIP Jon Lord.

This is the most devastated I've ever been by the death of a musician. He was legitimately my favorite individual musician in any band...

It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Jon Lord, who suffered a fatal pulmonary embolism today, Monday 16th July at the London Clinic, after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Jon was surrounded by his loving family.

Jon Lord, the legendary keyboard player with Deep Purple co-wrote many of the bands legendary songs including Smoke On The Water and played with many bands and musicians throughout his career.

Best known for his Orchestral work Concerto for Group & Orchestra first performed at Royal Albert Hall with Deep Purple and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in 1969 and conducted by the renowned Malcolm Arnold, a feat repeated in 1999 when it was again performed at the Royal Albert Hall by the London Symphony Orchestra and Deep Purple.

Jon’s solo work was universally acclaimed when he eventually retired from Deep Purple in 2002.

Jon passes from Darkness to Light.

Jon Lord 9 June 1941 – 16 July 2012.
