Stairway To Witness Box For Led Zep Legend

Rock legend Jimmy Page is to appear in a Scottish court as the star witness in a bootlegging trial.

The 63-year-old former Led Zeppelin guitarist has been cited to give evidence at Glasgow Sheriff Court this week.

He has confirmed he will appear in the case against a businessman accused of trying to sell more than 2400 pirate DVDs and CDs at a fair in the city's SECC in 2005.

Robert Langley, from Buckinghamshire, denies all 12 charges.

If found guilty, he could face up to 10 years in prison.

Page was cited by the prosecution as the alleged stash is said to have included many previously unreleased Led Zeppelin performances, featuring hits such as Whole Lotta Love and Stairway To Heaven.

These allegedly include a concert at Knebworth in 1979, a year before they split following the death of drummer John Bonham.

Page was the main songwriter for Led Zeppelin, who formed in 1968 and went on to become the second biggest selling band of all time, behind The Beatles.

For the past 17 years, he has been heavily involved in remastering their entire back catalogue.

In 2005, Page was awarded an OBE for his services to charity.

Last month, it was claimed Led Zeppelin are to reunite for a comeback tour which could net an estimated £300million.
