Robert Plant on Stairway to Heaven Backwards

Back in April I received an email about my Stairway to Heaven backwards clip. I know there is probably just as much chance that what this guy says is completely made up as true, but nonetheless he emailed me back yesterday and whether it's true or not I find the possibility interesting.
Hey dude, amazing what you can find on the net when your bored, pretty cool site, some of the lyrics im really skeptical about but hey thats life.

The main thing i wanted to say was my uncle's cousin is Robert Plant and the next time they get together i'm gonna ask if i can tag along and i'll ask Rob about the lyrics, more than likely he'll say it's all 'Bollocks' but hey - Worth a go.
To which I replied:
I figured it was bound to happen that eventually my site would reach someone from the band. Let me know what he says.
Yesterday I received the following:
Hey, i spoke to Rob a week ago and when i asked him he kindly replied "Not all this bollocks again" but he swore that the lyrics we're just as they we're and nothing was intentionally there when played backwards.
So words from the horses mouth seems that people are jst reading too much into the song, always good to have a bit of controversy though.
So there you (apparently) have it. Robert Plant, member of Led Zeppelin and the writer of Stairway to Heaven, thinks this whole backmasking controversy is a bunch of bollocks. It's too bad he didn't get a photo of Rob, that would have gone a long way in knowing that he really did talk to him.
