"It's a real privilege and a great honour to be the first person to be immortalised this way," said the 60-year-old Page on Monday, after leaving his prints in fresh cement.

"The Walk of Fame is a fantastic idea and it's about time that we had one in London," he added.

Page, who was born January 9, 1944 in Heston, England, began to play guitar at age 13 after being inspired by an Elvis Presley song.

John Paul Jones, Robert Plant and John Bonham were the other members of Led Zeppelin, one of the great rock bands of the 1970s. Their songs Whole Lotta Love and Stairway to Heaven became staples of rock 'n roll radio, though none of their songs were ever released as a single. The group disbanded in 1980.

"There are so many musicians who deserve this honour that if we started to count them all we could cover the whole city of London," said Page.
