Jimmy Page Thanks Fans for “Positive Energy” During “Stairway to Heaven” Lawsuit

It’s been a month since Led Zeppelin won a lawsuit brought on by the estate of Randy California over the intro for their iconic song, Stairway to Heaven.

Now, Jimmy Page is speaking out on social media to thank fans for all of their support.

“Throughout the lengthy journey to that verdict, and even more recently, I have received and been aware of the overwhelming wave of support, encouragement, and congratulations that has been deeply moving,” Page writes in a post on his Facebook page.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to personally thank all those who contributed such a positive energy to me.”

Led Zeppelin’s publishing company, Warner/Chappell is currently seeking close to $800,000 from Michael Skidmore, the Trustee of Spirit songwriter Randy California’s estate, in attorneys fees and other legal compensation.

A hearing is scheduled for August 8th.
