Jimmy Page To Give Keynote Address At Berklee College Of Music

Jimmy Page has signed on to give the commencement address at the Berklee College of Music's graduation ceremony this spring. The rock icon will address the elite Boston music school's graduates and will be on hand as the school gives honorary degrees to Motown songwriter Valerie Simpson, jazz pianist Geri Allen and Thara Memory of the American Music Program.

Page made headlines earlier this spring when Led Zeppelin released a new trailer to promote the reissue of their self-titled debut album.

The previously unreleased clip features the band performing live at Paris's Olympia Theatre on October 10, 1969. The full performance appears on the companion disc that comes with the reissue of Led Zeppelin, available June 2.

"The material on the companion discs presents a portal to the time of the recording of Led Zeppelin," Jimmy Page says. "It is a selection of work in progress with rough mixes, backing tracks, alternate versions and new material recorded at the time."
