Jimmy Page: How Stairway to Heaven was written        Video        BBC News        10 October 2014

 

Stairway to Heaven

was one of the biggest rock songs of the 1970s

 loved, imitated and sometimes parodied.

 

Now Led Zeppelin's classic track is back on the turntable,

on a re-mastered version of the band's fourth album.

 

43 years after its release,

the song continues to hold a place

in many music fans' hearts.

 

Guitarist Jimmy Page gives a personal account

of how a rock anthem came together.

 

Camera: Dave O'Neill, Richard Kenny.

Editing: Dave O'Neill.

Producer: Amanda Bruckshaw

You want to look as strong and impassioned

as the music you’re playing.’
