According to the British paper Evening Times, a UK rock fan has had the entire lyrics of LED ZEPPELIN's Stairway to Heaven tattooed on his back in a tribute to a dead friend. 38-year-old Gordon Roy reportedly lost his pal five years ago in an accident in Wishaw, Lanarkshire, when he was run over by a bus. He said: "It may sound mad but it was not a spur of the moment thing. I've been wondering how to pay tribute to Donald since he died. Donald and I loved this song.

In a three-hour session costing 65, all the words and images that accompany the song were tattooed in black ink by tattoo artist Dave McGowan of Motherwell. "People have told me it is amazing and keep asking to look at it, stated Roy. To see a photo of Gordon's tattoo, click here.
