(The Six O'Clock Triple Shot is a daily feature of three songs that share a common theme, heard weeknights on 94.9 WMMQ)

The late Jon Lord would have been celebrating birthday 73 come Monday. Lord was diagnosed in July 2011 with pancreatic cancer. Nearly one year later, Lord passed away from a pulmonary embolism on July 12, 2012 at the age of 71. Lord was best known for his legendary keyboard work with Deep Purple, but also spent time with Whitesnake before diving into Classical projects with various orchestras.

Tonight, we salute Jon Lord with three from his Deep Purple days. Tune in to hear "Space Truckin'", "Lazy", and "Knockin' At Your Back Door" for tonight's Six O'Clock Triple Shot on 94.9 WMMQ!
