On June 20, 2008 the University of Surrey conferred the honorary degree of Doctor of the University to Jimmy Page for services to the music industry.
The presentation ceremony was held at Guildford Cathedral.
This was the first big concert of the Autumn Term and a lot of people came up from Guildford for it so it was quite a reunion.
I didn't realise the momentousness of the occasion at the time - I wrote in my diary that it was 'a great dance' and that the 'Yardbirds' were 'quite good' !!!!
Jimmy generously signed a guitar to be given away in a competition at the upcoming Guil Fest festival.
