Congratulations Dr Jimmy Page


Jimmy Page received an honorary doctorate from Berklee College of Music on Saturday May 10th.

‘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.’ – Jimmy Page in his address to Berklee graduates

This year Motown songwriter Valerie Simpson, jazz pianist Geri Allen, and youth jazz orchestra founder Thara Memory also received the award. They join past honorees The Eagles, B.B. King, Steve Winwood, George Martin and David Bowie.
