One man orchestra

Australian musician Stefan Hauk have previously appeared on these pages for his collaboration with Paicey. Stefan not only plays guitar and sings, but also does keyboards, drums, and bass. On top of that, he has the cojones to tackle Child in Time all on his own.

Thanks to Jörg Planer for the heads up.

    I’m not a great fan of people doing covers of famous songs trying to get as close to the original as they can, it tends to become a bit of a spectacle.

    But for being what it is, you can’t fault his (many) abilities.

    Child in Time is especially tricky, no one seems to dare approach it differently. To this day, Big Ian himself ironically did the best “alternative version” with IGB:

    Frankly, to me, Stefan Hauk is the Ultimate Deep Purple fan. Hands down. I shall relinquish my title. Well played, well done. It took a lot of learnin’ and dedication to do this.

    Stefan asked his Facebook friends for some suggestions of songs to cover, I would’ve never suggested it as I didn’t believe anyone could pull it off, but he excelled. Very well done young man.

    I am impressed. You have to give him credit for doing each of the 5 parts competently plus the production skills to put it all together.

    @ 4 I am impressed too. Yet, it’s not my cup of tea. I heard the original for the first time in the summer of 1970. Being a 13 year old teenager, I became hooked on this song, on Deep Purple and special on Ritchie Blackmore forever.

    Knowing that Ian Gillan wrote the lyrics with the fear of a nuclear war in his mind, it’s now relevant as ever thanks to Putin. (No thanks). Never have we been so close to a Nuclear War as today.

    We sure live in unpleasant times. And voices of reason seem to be drowned out by the crowd. These days it seems to be all the rage to be either radical this or radical that. Unfortunately, the world is mostly in between. And when you ask the sensible question where it all might lead and what the longterm perspective is supposed to be, you get the “defeatist”-stamp. And I thought I would never have to read that term again.
