Worst Idea in the History of Music: Concerto for Jon Lord and george
Clinton Walker, Limelight, 2003
AN EMAIL ARRIVED for me a little while back, just after the program for the 2003 Sydney Festival was released. Titled THE WORST IDEA IN THE HISTORY OF MUSIC, it read, "george [sic - in case you don't know, they're a capitally-challenged hot new band from Brisbane] with Jon Lord and the SSO performing Deep Purple's Concerto for Group and Orchestra at the Opera House – has to be a joke right?"
