His solo on Whitesnake's Sweet Talker is pretty damn awesome. :)

I think some of his best work in rock was on Deep Purple's Perfect Strangers album. As compatible as he was with Blackmore I wonder what he would have been like with other guitarists of that general era. Say, with Jimmy Page on guitar...Dio on vocals, Keith Moon on percussion, and John Paul Jones on bass.

It's kind of a shame that today's bands don't use the Hammond B-3 organ anymore. It's a great piece for a rocking band to feature....and nobody was better at it than Jon Lord.
Nothing like a B3 pushed through Leslie speakers! R.I.P. Jon Lord.
