Jimmy Page Awarded Honorary Doctorate From Berklee College of Music
Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has racked up many titles through the years: God of Rock and Roll, Kennedy Center Honoree, Officer of the British Empire and now, Doctor. On May 9, Page was on hand at the Berklee College of Music in Boston to receive an honorary doctorate degree as well as to deliver a few short remarks, Ultimate Classic Rock reports.

Disregarding any notes, Page spoke (see below) briefly about what it means to be a musician. "What a spirit there is here," he noted after receiving the honor. "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."

Page has been in the public eye quite frequently lately drumming up publicity for the forthcoming Led Zeppelin remastered albums series. In addition to that, he also announced plans to re-release his once-pricey, limited-run autobiography to the mass public in October.
