Pretty much everyone involved has either denied it or kept silent on it.
If its out there - here is an experiment.
Play the studio version backwards. See if you hear it.
Get every version of "Stairway to Heaven" you can get your hands on (Live versions, old films, bootlegs, etc).
Play all the versions backwards and see if you hear it. If you don't hear it then maybe it was included on purpose. If you do hear it then it may
just be some weird coincidence about the way those words sounds backwards.
My reasoning is that I think that even it was done on purpose it would be difficult for Zep to track down every version of the song and put that in
there. So, if its in every version - its probably just a weird coincidence with the way those words sounds backwards.
