Roger H. Brown, Berklee President, Presents Honorary Degrees
Probably one of the most poignant and entertaining speeches of the day was that of Roger H. Brown, the Berklee President. His words of wit, wisdom and classic rock history, had even our media expert/web photographer, Brian Shea, chuckling behind his Google Glass.
When Page accepted the degree, he shared the heartwarming feeling of being "overwhelmed:"
...the illustrious company of the honorees [due to the] sheer depth and perfunctory of their music. Music has so much power, across so many avenues, to be in a position, where you have have done the thing which you are pretty much best at, which is making music, and bringing joy and pleasure to people, it can't be really much better.
Congratulations on your degrees and all the successes of the future.
(Jimmy Page, Berklee, May 10, 2014).
