The Story of Icarus. the old man warns the young son not to fly too close to the sun or the wax that holds his wings together will melt. The young man ignores him and his wings fall apart and he falls to his death. Bruce got the story the wrong way round, he thought it was about rebellion of youth against opressive old people (got issues Bruce?) so the lyrics were fucked up and he had to change them. Just then Led Zepplin broke up. the falling angel was the label for their record company (because it looked a bit like Robert Plant). So I combined them into this, not very sucessful picture. I could have done a much better job with the wings, but for some reason, that day I really didn't want to paint wings. The little box up in the sky is Eddie's padded cell from the album cover (Piece of Mind) from which this is the first single (I think).
