Jimmy Page to recieve a Honarary Doctorate at Berklee College of Music in Boston

Recommended Posts

I am so happy he is going. Sadly it is not open to the public. Only for the graduates and their families.

yeah no way a commencement ceremony would be open to the public. Those things always barely have enough room for peoples' families!

I'd guess he won't perform, but wonder if he'll make a speech as part of it. As part of the trip for that, have to assume that's when he'll do promo in new york for the zeppelin releases.

Jeez, I have the worst luck trying to see him. My best friend and a lot of other friends go to Berklee and I'd love to fly out for this. Of course none of them are graduating.... AHHHHHHHHHHHH

SOMEONE HELP ME

I would think the same. I hope there is something in the Boston Globe about him being in Boston. I also think he will promoting the sets too.

I work with someone who is attending for a family member's graduation. From what he says there will be a speech but he is not sure about performance. If he brings me back any photos, I will post.

...AEN, Jimmy is very well versed culturally, he will most definitely make a speech....at last, if not for the world, for the Pagettes, he knows that we want to hear from him...

If I weren't graduating myself that weekend I would probably have begged onto the trip. Or hidden in the trunk of his car.

Perhaps I will rent academic regalia, slip into the back of the procession and if asked, give my name as Zippy Zeppaholic. Bet it would work!

Yes indeed. I'm dead chuffed by this news. But when will he get recognized for his contributions to biomedical research? ;)

That's a good question. I guess he gave up on it once his skiffle band became such a force in music back in 1959! :rolleyes:

Holy cow, guys! It is looking extremly likely that I will get tickets to this!!! Now to work on the flight....

Any word if he is playing in the concert the night before? It seems Alison Krauss played with Berklee when she was honored

There has been no news if he is even going, though I hope it. He just returned from Japan with Ross.

Well, I managed to secure tickets to the commencement concert and ceremony! I know Jimmy didn't say he is going, but the Berklee website indicates he wil be in attendance. Looking at past ceremonies, almost all honorees attend including The Eagles, Steven Tyler, Allison Krauss, Willie Nelson, and many more. This just doesn't seem like something Jimmy would miss out on. It also seems like a lot of past honorees have joined in during the concert for a song. Jimmy has been joining in with a few performances "lately" (like Roy Harper and the Black Crowes) and he seems to love having the chance to play, so maybe he will jump in on Whole Lotta Love or something. Its a stretch, but I can hope! Anyways, I am just beyond thrilled I will finally get to see my greatest musical hero! At a cool event, nonetheless!

I have been thinking though, why the hell wouldn" Percy and Jonsey be honored? I am confused as to why the entire current lineup of The Eagles would be honored, but the majority of Aerosmith and Zeppelin wouldn't. Surely Plant, Jones, Perry, Whitford, etc are deserving?
