Deep Purple Frontman Breaks Up The UK In Novel He's Writing

(Classic Rock) Deep Purple frontman Ian Gillan has revealed he's writing a novel that explores what happens when a part of England declares independence from the UK.

Gillan tells US radio station 94HJY: "It's about the declaration of independence of the four counties of the south-west of England, calling themselves the country Wessex.

"It's about a new way of thinking, a rethinking of democracy, which is struggling with its greatest strength tolerance. That strength becomes a weakness; so you have to fight to keep the aims of democracy going.

"It's a good chance to reshuffle everything from schooling to policing to transport and health it's a refreshing look at what you can do when you get a fresh start." He's also working on another title that explores theology.
