JOE BROWN joked that Henley is the home of rock stars at a tribute concert to his friend Jon Lord.
He took to the stage at the Royal Albert Hall on Friday night as part of an all-star line-up to remember the composer and Deep Purple keyboard player.
Brown said that Henley had been not just the home of former Beatle George Harrison but also a host of other rock musicians.
The veteran rock ’n’ roll star then joked that when he moved to the area “house prices came down”.
He also thanked the Lord family in helping him cope with the death of his wife, Vicki.
