Jimmy Page did change his autograph during the mid to late 70's. If you see examples on JimmyPage.co.uk you will see the difference between his autograph from the Yardbirds period to his solo careers.

Page actually brought Plumpton Place in 1970 and sold it in 1985. I live at the Agricultural College next to it.

To finally set the record straight: Page was indeed present that night. The "fan" to whom you refer was actually a neighbor who lived within walking distance of Plumpton Place and grew up in the village. His name was Philip Hale, he was 26 years old and a graduate of the Royal College of Art. Hale and Page became friends after meeting at the Ronnie Wood gig a few years before. He overdosed on heroin supplied to him by Page (Hale had not done heroin before). He was found dead in one of the guest bedrooms at Plumpton Place the following morning when a member of the household went to wake him with a cup of tea. There was a coroner's inquest which Page was required to attend and answer questions. Page and a distraught Charlotte attended Hale's funeral and moved out of the house shortly afterwards though it took a long time to actually sell it. Ironically, and more famously, a similar tragedy ocurred again the following year at their next house (in Windsor) when Led Zep drummer John Bohnham was found dead following a night of binge drinking.

I`m not only a Zeppelin fanatic, but I have been collecting Zeppelin - including Jimmy Page and Robert Plant solo music & information - for over 27 years. I am truly a lover of Page/Plant music in & out of Zeppelin simply because of the honesty & integrity of it all. - I have been studying them for as long as I have been listening to Rock/Blues Music. Their interpretation of the blues is unlike any other. I look forward to any question and will answer the very best I can - as above all - I am just a fan like you! (Please understand my interest is in the music and people of REAL life; NOT in rumor or fantasy).
