JIMMY PAGE: Stairway to a Doctorate
Jimmy Page was given an honorary doctorate of music Saturday at the Berklee College of Music in Boston.
Standing before 900 graduates, Page said, “Music has so much power across so many avenues, to be in a position to do the thing you’re best at, which is making music, and bringing joy and pleasure to other people, it can’t be much better than that. I wish to pass that on to all of you. Congratulations with your degrees and lots of success in the future.”
Also honored was singer-songwriter Valerie Simpson. Previous Berklee honorees include David Bowie, Bonnie Raitt, Sting, B.B. King, Billy Joel and Steven Tyler.
