Jimmy Page Could Soon be “Sir” Jimmy Page
Sir Jimmy Page, sounds nice doesn't it? It could happen! A member of the British Parliament wants Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page to be knighted just like other iconic British rockers like Sir Paul McCartney and Sir Mick Jagger.
According to The Daily Mail, Louise Mensch is campaigning for Page to be knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.
“Clearly there is nobody more worthy of a knighthood and I am glad to say I have gathered support from every major record label in the UK,” Mensch says. Her husband is Peter Mensch, Page’s former manager. This is just coincidence, Mensch says. One of the most innovative guitarists of the 20th century deserves the honor on his own reputation.
Page said he was overwhelmed after being awarded an OBE in 2005 for his charitable work helping street children in Brazil.
