Jimmy Page

James Patrick Page is an English musician and record producer who achieved international success as the guitarist and founder of the rock band Led Zeppelin. Page began his career as a studio session musician in London and, by the mid-1960s, alongside Big Jim Sullivan, was one of the most sought-after session guitarists in Britain, he was a member of the Yardbirds from 1966 to 1968. In late 1968, he founded Led Zeppelin. Page is considered to be one of the greatest and most influential guitarists of all time. Rolling Stone magazine has described Page as "the pontiff of power riffing" and ranked him number three in their list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time", behind Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton. In 2010, he was ranked number two in Gibson's list of "Top 50 Guitarists of All Time" and, in 2007, number four on Classic Rock's "100 Wildest Guitar Heroes", he was inducted into the Roll Hall of Fame twice. Page was born to James Patrick Page and Patricia Elizabeth Gaffikin in the west London suburb of Heston on 9 January 1944.

His father was a personnel manager at a plastic-coatings plant and his mother, of Irish descent, was a doctor's secretary. In 1952, they moved to Feltham and to Miles Road, Epsom in Surrey. Page was educated from the age of eight at Epsom County Pound Lane Primary School, when he was eleven he went to Ewell County Secondary School in West Ewell, he came across his first guitar, a Spanish guitar, in the Miles Road house: "I don't know whether was left behind by the people before, or whether it was a friend of the family's—nobody seemed to know why it was there." First playing the instrument when aged 12, he took a few lessons in nearby Kingston, but was self-taught: When I grew up there weren't many other guitarists... There was one other guitarist in my school who showed me the first chords that I learned and I went on from there. I was bored. So it was a personal thing; this "other guitarist" was a boy called Rod Wyatt, a few years his senior, together with another boy, Pete Calvert, they would practise at Page's house.

Among Page's early influences were rockabilly guitarists Scotty Moore and James Burton, who both played on recordings made by Elvis Presley. Presley's song "Baby Let's Play House" is cited by Page as being his inspiration to take up the guitar, he would reprise Moore's playing on the song in the live version of "Whole Lotta Love" on The Song Remains the Same, he appeared on BBC1 in 1957 with a Höfner President acoustic, which he'd bought from money saved up from his milk round in the summer holidays and which had a pickup so it could be amplified, but his first solid-bodied electric guitar was a second-hand 1959 Futurama Grazioso replaced by a Fender Telecaster, a model he had seen Buddy Holly playing on the TV and a real-life example of which he'd played at an electronics exhibition at the Earls Court Exhibition Centre in London. Page's musical tastes included skiffle and acoustic folk playing, the blues sounds of Elmore James, B. B. King, Otis Rush, Buddy Guy, Freddie King and Hubert Sumlin.

"Basically, the start: a mixture between rock and blues."At the age of 13, Page appeared on Huw Wheldon's All Your Own talent quest programme in a skiffle quartet, one performance of which aired on BBC1 in 1957. The group played "Mama Don't Want to Skiffle Anymore" and another American-flavoured song, "In Them Ol' Cottonfields Back Home"; when asked by Wheldon what he wanted to do after schooling, Page said, "I want to do biological research cancer, if it isn't discovered by then."In an interview with Guitar Player magazine, Page stated that "there was a lot of busking in the early days, but as they say, I had to come to grips with it and it was a good schooling." When he was fourteen, billed as James Page, he played in a group called Malcolm Austin and Whirlwinds, alongside Tony Busson on bass, Stuart Cockett on rhythm and a drummer called Tom, knocking out Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis numbers. This band was short-lived, as Page soon found a drummer for a band he'd been playing in with Rod Wyatt, David Williams and Pete Calvert, came up with a name for them: The Paramounts.

The Paramounts played gigs in Epsom, once supporting a group who would become Johnny Kidd & the Pirates. Although interviewed for a job as a laboratory assistant, he chose to leave secondary school in West Ewell to pursue music, doing so at the age of fifteen – the earliest age permitted at the time – having gained four GCE O levels and on the back of a major row with the school Deputy Head Miss Nicholson about his musical ambitions, about which she was wholly scathing. Page had difficulty finding other musicians with. "It wasn't as. I used to play in many groups... anyone who could get a gig together, really." Following stints backing recitals by Beat poet Royston Ellis at the Mermaid Theatre between 1960–61, singer Red E. Lewis, who'd seen him playing with the Paramounts at the Contemporary club in Epsom and told his manager Chris Tidmarsh to ask Page to join his backing band, the Redcaps, after the departure of guitarist Bobby Oats, Page was asked by singer Neil Christian to join his band, the Crusaders.

Christian had seen a fifteen-year-old Page playing in a local hall, the guitarist toured with Christian for approximatel

A169 road

The A169 is an A road in North Yorkshire, England. It runs from the A64 at Malton on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds through the Vale of Pickering and across the North York Moors to join the A171 just west of Whitby, it is a single carriageway for all of its 25-mile route. Whilst it is not considered a Primary Route nationally, the Ryedale Local Transport Plan lists it as part of its Major Road Network alongside the A64, A166 and A171; the moorland section between Pickering and the junction with the A171 can be problematic to travellers during winter when frost, dense fog and heavy snow are common occurrences. Malton Pickering Lockton Saltergate Sleights The B1257 connects Malton town centre with the A64. Once the B1257 reaches the A64 it becomes the A169 road to Whitby. On the north west of this junction is Eden Camp; the route goes in a northerly direction through the Vale of Pickering and crossing the confluence of the River Rye and the Costa Beck before reaching Pickering town and intersecting with the A170.

The route goes north east and strikes out across the green countryside on the edge of the Dalby Forest. It enters the North York Moors National Park 1.2 miles out of Pickering near to Little Park Wood. 8 miles out of Pickering is a car park for taking in the superb views to west over the Hole of Horcum. After this there is a sharp 90° turn to the west followed by a sharp 180° downhill turn to the east before you pass out into the purple moorland landscape past the Saltersgate public house. Legend has it that there is the body of a Excise man buried beneath the fireplace. If the fire in the pub goes out, his ghost will come out and haunt the house and its patrons.1.9 miles after the Hole of Horcum is the turning for RAF Fylingdales and another sharp bend in the road over Eller Beck Bridge. This is where the Lyke Wake Walk route crosses the A169; this one bends east first west and is not a severe as that approaching Saltersgate. Here you pass the first turn for Goathland as the route strikes out across Widow Howe Moor and Low Moor.

There are some places to stop along the moorland route and it is popular with walkers. After this there is a descent and ascent over Brocka Beck Bridge before the second turn for Goathland. At the junction is Sleights Moor, another turn off the road and you happen across another viewpoint which looks north east across to Larpool Viaduct and Whitby. From here downhill is the steep 1 in 5 of Blue Bank which has an escape route on the northbound side as you go downhill and high friction surface tarmac to aid in braking. At the bottom of Blue Bank is the turn for Grosmont and the route is downhill from here with some gentle gradients and some steeper as you descend into the village of Sleights. At the bottom of the valley you cross the River Esk and the Middlesbrough to Whitby Railway line across Sleights Bridge; this bridge was built in 1937 to replace a bridge, swept away in the flood of 1930. After the bridge is the east turn for the B1410 into Ruswarp it is up out of the valley on a much gentler climb until the road reaches a roundabout junction with the A171.

Eastwards it westwards it is 29 miles to Middlesbrough. Acts of Parliament for the building of a Turnpike between Whitby and Pickering were granted in 1784, 1785 and 1827; the original turnpike road south from Whitby deviated at the Fox and Rabbit Inn and headed south through to Thornton Dale. This road still exists as a minor route; the route south from Saltersgate was tarred in the 1920s, with the whole route between Pickering and Whitby being tarred by the 1930s. After extensive flooding of the River Derwent and Pickering Beck in the year 2000, the A169 between Malton and Pickering was raised to elevate it above the water levels in future possible flooding; the route passes through two SSSIs when north of Pickering: Hole of Newtondale. According to the Landscape Conservation Action Plan, the scenery and view alongside the moorland section of the A169 has been blighted by the pylons that run alongside the road and across the moor. In 2015, Northern Powergrid started remedial works to remove the pylons and associated electrical equipment and replace them with a sub-surface cable power network.

North Yorkshire Police have mobile speed cameras placed on the road at random times. These cameras have been recording in positions where people have been killed or injured and at designated motorcycle incident points (the route is recognised as being'used by motorcycles that has a high incidence of collisions and anti social behaviour.' Serious offenders summonsed to court were. Buses operate on the route between Whitby; the Coastliner service runs from Leeds onto Malton 3 times hourly. Of these, an hourly service operates to Pickering with four services a day going on to Whitby via the A169; the whole route of the Coastliner service was voted Britain's most scenic bus route in an online poll in 2018. Particular mention was made about the section across the moors on the A169 road

Asylum (2015 TV series)

Asylum is a British comedy series, shown on BBC Four from 9 to 23 February 2015. The satirical comedy series revolves around a whistleblower and an internet pirate find themselves trapped together under the threat of extradition in the London embassy of a fictional Latin American country; the show was inspired by Julian Assange’s two-year stay in the Ecuadorian embassy and the controversial entrepreneur Kim Dotcom. The show was conceived by fonejacker star, Kayvan Novak and Tom Thostrup, before being written by Thom Phipps and Peter Bowden. One of the writers of the series Thom Phipps once called for the police to publicly shoot the Wikileaks founder in the head. On the day Julian Assange was given political asylum, by the government of Ecuador, Phipps twitted:'If the met want to regain my trust they should drag Assange out the embassy + shoot him in the back of th head in the middle of traf square.' A complaint was lodged with the BBC over its decision to employ Phipps on the basis that he'advocated for the public extrajudicial assassination' of the Wikileaks founder.

The BBC's response was that:'Unfortunately Mr Philip's is not a BBC member of staff and is not representing the BBC. Therefore we will not be commenting on Twitter posts made by third parties.' The series has yet to be released on DVD.
