Happy Birthday Jimmy Page!  Yes, he’s still alive, guitarist and leader of the mega-famous band “Led Zeppelin” turns 72 years old today.

Jimmy Page was recently in court with his friend and former band mate Robert Plant over copyright infringements of the introduction to the 1971 hit “Stairway to Heaven”. A quick read through the reported proceedings from the day in court show that Page & Plant are still rock n rollers through and through.

It’s a bit difficult to consider the impact Page, Plant and the rest of Led Zeppelin had on music, their signature song “Stairway to Heaven” is estimated to be worth over $550 million alone.  Been a while since you listened?  Here it is performed by the band live at Madison Square Garden, New York in 1974.
