Hungarian Finance Minister Mihály Varga – whose day job is pretty much taken up by “boring” numbers – has showed a lighter side of his personality, playing a few cords from Deep Purple’s famous Smoke on the Water hit. He posted a short video clip on his Facebook page, in which he readily admitted that “Deep Purple does it better”.
The minister was drawing attention to an interview he gave to the latest issue of Hungarian hard rock and heavy metal magazine Hammerworld, out today.
Incidentally, the finance minister is not the only cabinet member with musical talents: Justice Minister Judit Varga (the matching surnames are just a coincidence), recently released a studio recording in which she played the violin accompaniment to singer Flóra Tandi.
