Hello PB
Jon was such a nice guy, I adored not only his music but also his acting. He was brilliant. R.I.P Jon

In the 70s I could have almost imagined English fronting a band like Deep Purple. Would have been awesome. Maybe it was his theatre background, but his interpretive skills as a singer were among the best of the era.

Oh yes, Jon was terrific in his theatre work, I truly loved all of what I saw him doing. And his singing was awesome, I loved his music.
