AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) _ A former Led Zeppelin fan who now calls the band’s music ``satanic″ was arrested for allegedly trying to stab guitarist Jimmy Page.

Four people, including two attending Friday’s concert, suffered minor cuts when Lance Alworth Cunningham slashed at them with a pocket knife as he dropped onto the floor behind the stage, police said.

``He said he was going to `off Jimmy Page,′ ″ police Chief John Dalton said.

Page, who was playing during the Page-Robert Plant concert, was unaware of what was happening about 50 feet away, police said. The attacker was subdued by employees and a stage hand.

Cunningham, 23, remained jailed today on three counts of felonious assault and one count of aggravated assault.
