British MP Lobbying For Jimmy Page Knighthood

Sir Jimmy Page? It could happen, if one British MP has her way. The Daily Mail reports Tory MP Louise Mensch is lobbying for a knighthood for Led Zeppelin guitar legend Jimmy Page, who just happens to be one of her husband's former clients. "I've proposed Jimmy Page," Louise wrote on Twitter. "Waiting to see if that finds favour with Honours Directorate. I hope so." Peter Mensch is a co-owner of artist management company Q Prime, who oversee the careers of acts like Metallica, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Muse. She denied that her husband's past role as his manager had any influence, adding: "Clearly there is nobody more worthy of a knighthood and I am glad to say I have gathered support from every major record label in the UK." In 2005, Page was awarded the OBE Order Of The British Empire in recognition of his Brazilian charity work for Task Brazil and Action For Brazil's Children's Trust, which was founded by his wife Jimena Gomez-Paratcha in 1998.

    For a second I misunderstood the title as "British Mike Portnoy". Sir Jimmy Page sounds awesome! Let it be done.

    How about Sir Tony Iommi? Sir Ozzy Osbourne, Sir Lemmy or Sir Bruce Dickenson? Will that ever happen?

    No. Because even though Beethoven went deaf, he still wasn't as sloppy as Jimmy Page.

    I had visions about Beethoven being so deaf that he had run all his works through Autotune, and spilled my coffee

    Knighted for services to music I presume? Can't argue with that. Although calling him a modern day Beethoven is taking it way too far, assuming you're being serious. Jimmy Page is a great guitarist and Zeppelin have written some amazing stuff (I'm not personally too big on them but I respect what they've done for contemporary music) but you can't seriously say he's as talented of a composer as Beethoven.
