Not only the cops…

John Whittingdale, the newly appointed UK Culture Secretary, has revealed in a recent interview to The Telegraph that he is a Deep Purple fan:

I love TV, I love film, I love music. I always have done. My tastes in all of them are pretty broad. I occasionally think about what might be my top 10 records and it ranges from Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet to Deep Purple’s Knocking at Your Back Door.

I do have a love of rock music – I’m seeing AC/DC in a couple of week’s time.

I’m going to the Roundhouse tonight. I went there for something called Sham’s Last Stand which was Sham 69 when I was about 22. I went to see the Buzzcocks there, I’ve seen Deep Purple there.

As Ian Gillan once said, “it seems that not only policemen but presidents too are getting younger”.

Thanks to Yvonne for the info.
