Guitarist Jimmy Page does not feel that he can endorse a petition drive to get Led Zeppelin a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, his spokesperson said.

A Northern California man who started the campaign, Rocky Dickerson from Chico, requested written approval from Led Zeppelin members and management to proceed with the Hollywood nomination. He has since received the following response from the offices of Jimmy Page's accountant, Joan Hudson & Co:

"There are two letters relating to the [proposed Led Zeppelin star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame], addressed to Jimmy Page, which have been passed to me. I have now had the opportunity of discussing these with Jimmy. He has asked me to thank you for this interest but he does not feel that this is something that he can endorse."

Dickerson told the Chico Enterprise Record that he launched the star campaign after attending the Led Zeppelin reunion performance for the Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert in London last year and returning to California, only to find the VH1's No. 1 ranked "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock" had no Hollywood star.

"I'm trying to make this a totally fan-driven thing," he said. "I don't want anything from any corporate entity, or anything from Led Zeppelin. I want this to be a small thing that we, the fans, can give back to Led Zeppelin after 40 years of great music."
