Jimmy Page: How Stairway to Heaven was written - BBC News

This is just moving in so many ways. I have the actual album, vinyl. Hearing it like this takes me back to my childhood. Everything Zeppelin did was amazing to me as a child. I actually picked up guitar because I wanted to be Jimmy Page. The damn thing was bigger than I was. It's a moving and humbling experience some forty years later to see Jimmy Page sat in a comfy chair talking about the album and the song "Stairway to Heaven". To me he is still a god. Even as I watch the video and hear his voice and the song I am getting goosebumps. That is superior song writing. Thank you to the BBC for doing this piece. Thank you to Jimmy Page for being such an inspiration to musicians for decades.
