Zep Star Campaign

Campaign To Get LED ZEPPELIN Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame Continues
Posted on Monday, March 16, 2009 at 16:29:32 EST

On March 10th, the LED ZEPPELIN Star Campaign Petition to get a Star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame reached their 1000 signature goal. The petition has been sent to guitarist Jimmy Page, singer Robert Plant and bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones with a request to reconsider endorsing the drive.

According to organizer Rocky Dickerson, "in October of 2008 Jimmy Page had notified me through his representative that he could not endorse the campaign. I am hoping if the band reviews the many positive comments of support in the petition, they may have second thoughts, or at least, contact me with any questions or concerns they may have. Since it appears unlikely Zeppelin will reunite or tour again, I was looking at this effort as a final way all the fans could say "thank you" for all the joy and timeless music Led Zeppelin gave to us throughout the years.

JIMI HENDRIX, THE DOORS and THE BEATLES are but a few of the rock icons who have a star on the Walk of Fame. I feel it's time to honor Led Zeppelin with one. Jimmy Page was the first to be immortalized on the British Walk of Fame a few years ago and Zeppelin's many American fans would like to extend a similar honor on US shores."
