[1997]
Lyrics and music by Jim Page
Album: Heroes And Survivors

One family of Irish officials treated their 'red brethren' with humanity, but Scots-Irish President Andrew Jackson
oversaw the tribe's ruthless eviction from their lands.


On that spring day, as Major William Armstrong surveyed those who had gathered in the small timber agency where he lived, he must have experienced mixed emotions.

Amazon

[2018]

"I wanted to post this song because of what’s happening in Seattle right now. It came about by going downtown one night to take a look at the new “Amazon Spheres,” and all the cranes and all the building. I love this city in a deep resonating way and I see a history that Amazon is at odds with, that Bezos and all of clones would like to disappear – using that word like a verb. I got here in 1971 and fell in love with the climate, the water, the mountains, the ease of the pace, the spontaneity, the music scene, all of it. And I swam in it for years. Still there was a clique of people who yearned for a greater and shinier city, with a celebrated upper class, and banks that would proudly welcome the likes of Boss Tweed. I played everywhere – the bus station, the TV station, all the bars and cocktail lounges, but I couldn’t get into the Rainier Club because that was private space for... (continua)

HIROSHIMA-NAGASAKI RUSSIAN ROULETTE: STORY OF A SONG
Jimmy Page interviewed by Robert Allen
http://www.bluegreenearth.us/archive/r...

"Way back in the mid 70's we had a governor here in Washington state named Dixie Lee Ray. She had been chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission under Nixon and was full of herself. She loved nuclear power and hated environmentalists, and she invited everyone to send their waste here to Washington to be dumped at the Hanford site. She was famous for her superiority complex and would ask for your credentials if you challenged her on anything. Well, the Hanford site leaked and every once in a while it would hit the papers and the environmentalists would get on her case. One time after a particularly embarrassing incident she made the announcement that she was going to close Hanford until this... (continua)
