5. Jon Lord takes to the conductor's podium
The first performance of Lord’s Concerto for Group and Orchestra at Deep Purple’s Royal Albert Hall appearance in September 1969. Lord’s talent for combining classical music with rock continued throughout his career, and even though the original score of his Concerto was lost, the piece was re-performed in 1999 from a recreated score.
