March 5: Stairway to Heaven

On this date in History .... March 5, 1971:  

Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” played for the first time in Belgium. The 8 min, 2 sec song is the most requested song on U.S. radio, despite the fact that it never actual hit any of the charts …the song was never released as a single due to its length and the band would not authorize a cut (shorter) version. It is the biggest selling single piece of sheet music sold in rock history.
