Jon Lord of Deep Purple is undergoing specialist treatment for pancreatic cancer in Israel and hopes to be back at work with the band. The 70-year-old keyboard player confirmed the cancer last year.  Deep Purple drummer Ian Paice, says that Jon is receiving a new treatment, which appears to be working well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ian Paice in interview said "Jon was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, but really early,early stages. And we know it's not a good one - whether there is a good one - but so far all the news from Jon is great. "There are no more cancer cells being produced, and those that are lying dormant are being, hopefully, wiped out as we speak by a brand new treatment which he is over in Israel having right now. So we're already thinking that he may be back working in April or May."

Good Luck Jon.
