Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page Recalls People’s First Reaction To ‘Stairway To Heaven’

Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page took fans back to the past in a recent post he sent through his official social channels and remembered people’s first reaction to ‘Stairway To Heaven,’ which was released in 1971.

In his social media photo taken by Chuck Boyd in 1971, Jimmy Page was sitting at the armchair and drinking something. When he was taking fans back to those days, Jimmy said:

“Led Zeppelin began their North American tour in Vancouver, Canada on 19th August 1971 but started in the US at the LA Forum on this day – this being the first of two nights.

I remember a standing ovation from a good percentage of the audience after ‘Stairway to Heaven’ – this was quite remarkable as we were touring this material from an album not to be released until three months later.⁣”
