Jimmy Page of Zeppelin is a devout follower of Satanist, Aleister Crowley, who proclaimed himself as “The Beast 666”. Aleister Crowley was also a 33rd and 97th Degree Freemason and is recognized as the master Satanist of the 20th century. In 1971, guitarist Jimmy Page bought Crowley’s Boleskine House.
Their song “Stairway to Heaven” carries the reference “May Queen,” which is purportedly the name of a hideous poem written by Crowley. Page had inscribed in the vinyl of their album Led Zeppelin III, Crowley’s famous “Do what thou wilt. So let it Be.’ Page and Robert Plant claim some of Zeppelins’ songs came via occultic “automatic handwriting,” including their popular “Stairway to Heaven.” Jimmy Page purchased Crowleys home in Scotland which overlooks Loch-ness which was once a church that burned to the ground with the congregation inside.
Another thing that Crowley emphasized to his readers was that musicians into Magick would be able to be musical mediums. When speaking of “Stairway to Heaven,” Robert Plant claimed to be a musical medium. He said the following about how he received the lyrics to the song: “‘I was just sitting there with Pagey in front of a fire at Headley Grange,’ Plant recalled. ‘Pagey had written these chords and he played them for me. I was holding a pencil and paper and for some reason, I was in a very bad mood. Then all of a sudden my hand was writing out the words: “There’s a lady who’s sure, all that glitters is gold, and she’s buying a Stairway to Heaven.” I just sat there and I looked at the words and I almost leapt out of my seat.’”
