Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page will receive an honorary degree from the Berklee College of Music.
Page will receive the honor on May 10 at Boston University's Agganis Arena in Massachusetts.
"It's truly an honor to be the recipient of an Honorary Doctorate at Berklee as the music of America has been a primary driving force in my early years and pivotal to my musical development," Page wrote in an email sent to Rolling Stone.
Jazz pianist Geri Allen, singer/songwriter Valerie Simpson and jazz trumpeter Thara Memory will be honored at the ceremony, as well.
Past Berklee honorees include David Bowie, Carole King, Loretta Lynn and George Clinton.
