Whitesnake with JL (1978-1984)

Jon Lord joined Whitesnake in August 1978 halfway into recording the band’s debut album. He left the group in April 1984 for a reunion of Deep Purple. Whitesnake toured extensively. Jon Lord’s playing was always a highlight of the show. A number of singles was released during this period, the band also appeared on TV numerous times. JL usually regards the six years spent in Whitesnake as “holidays”, and always says many warm words about this period of his life.
