Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page delivered Berklee College of Music's commencement address this morning at the Agganis Arena.

The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, who addressed the school's 880 graduates and nearly 6,000 guests, also received an honorary degree. He was joined by R&B songwriter Valerie Simpson, jazz pianist Geri Allen, and trumpeter Thara Memory.

Page, 70, attended the Berklee College of Music Commencement Concert at Agganis Arena Friday night.
