Roger Daltrey has been awarded an honorary degree from Middlesex University. He was awarded the degree at a ceremony where he was joined by hundreds of students who were graduating, some of whom contributed visuals to his rock-opera Tommy.
"If I had the power to give honours, the students would be getting extra honorary degrees from me. After having the privilege of working with them on my production of the Who's Tommy, I was amazed with their vision and creativity. I look forward to seeing more of their work, knowing that within the visual creative industries, the future is a bright one. For me to receive this degree is an honour indeed," Daltry said at the event.
"Roger Daltrey is one of the greatest musicians Britain has produced and he has been successful at everything he has turned his hand to," added Middlesex University Vice-Chancellor Michael Driscoll.
