Led Zeppelin's Page will address Berklee seniors

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - Former Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page will be this year's commencement speaker at the Berklee College of Music in Boston.

The private college known for its music program announced Tuesday that the 70-year-old British musician will address seniors on May 9 at the Agganis Arena.

Page was the guitarist for the English rock group that fused blues, R&B and rock 'n' roll for a new hard rock sound in the 1970s. It disbanded in 1980.

Page co-wrote one of its most famous songs, "Stairway to Heaven." He was nominated for the 2014 class of the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Berklee also will present honorary doctorates to Page, Motown and R&B songwriter Valerie Simpson, jazz pianist and educator Geri Allen, and American Music Program youth jazz orchestra founder Thara Memory.
