24. Child in Time

Jon Lord playing intro to "Child in Time"

Such a mighty moment. Jon Lord has moved from the grand piano to his “weapon of choice” in his days as a member of what was one of the biggest rock bands in the world during the 1970’s.

Starting to play on the Hammond organ, the opening chords – G – G – Am – from Deep Purple’s epic song Child in Time from equally legendary 1970 album Deep Purple in Rock from 1970.

What can I say? Being able to stand a couple of meters away as Jon played THAT intro, surely was an emotional moment for an old fan.
