Jasper Steverlinck covers "United States Of Eurasia" at the "I <3 Eu" festival
 
Jasper Steverlinck just did a cover of United States of Eurasia at the "I <3 EU" festival in Brussels..

Watched it on the live stream here
http://www.eutrio.be/multimedia

and here:
http://ec.europa.eu/avservices/playe...m?type=ebsLive

I hope there is a video of it after the live stream is over..:stunned:

omg sounded horrible!!! sorry but that happens when you touch Muse!!

I just had a look at the website again and they uploaded a short summary of all the performances.. you can see Jasper Steverlinck in the "I <3 EU" video at 2:11

They really seemed to like Muse, they even stole the flying balloon idea at the beginning of the vid!;)

I reeeeeaaally don't want to hear this. It can't be anything but awful.

Did he also do "Collateral Damage"? And if so, was it also so bad as to be... collateral damage...?

canīt find a video though, I hope they will upload all the videos on one of the websites above.. I donīt know if Jasper Steverlinck is famous enough that this specific performance will make an appearance on youtube..

Well, he's got one big plus going for him... a very distinctive name, at least! I haven't heard of a pianist/singer with a marquee like that since Engelbert Humperdinck [sp.?]...

Actually not a surprise he did a Muse cover. It's also known he's a fan of Jeff Buckley.
Here's a JB cover: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ak6xZ6PW7c

I remember the guitarist of his band has a silver Telecaster which looks a bit like the Delorean ^^

edit: also found a Radiohead cover, didn't hear this before: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1Slo...eature=related

Am I the only one who finds it highly ironic that they are playing USoE, a song obstensibly railing against superstate totalitarianism, at an EU event?

No you're not. I find it ironic too.

I think USoE can be taken in more than one way, it can be taken as a patrotric attack on America, basically saying that if we all get together, we can be more powerful and better than you, so stop messing with us; or it can be a satire mocking America; or it can be about an end to war and power through unity; but ultimately Collateral Damage hints at the dangers of superstates so I suppose in that way it it's ironic to use it, though it was probably used to celebrate the power of unity.

Anyway the vocal in the clip isn't too good.
