Jimmy Page Awarded Honorary Doctorate From Berklee College Of Music

Jimmy Page was awarded an honorary doctorate from Boston's prestigious Berklee College of Music. Speaking during the ceremony, Page offered some thoughts on what it means to be a musician:

"What a spirit there is here," he began.

"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."

At the ceremony, Berklee also awarded honorary degrees to Motown songwriter Valerie Simpson and jazz pianist Geri Allen. Past honorees have included Willie Nelson, Steven Tyler and Annie Lennox..
