Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page to be Knighted, if British MP Gets Her Way

If one member of the British Parliament has her way, Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page could soon share something in common with Sir Elton John, Sir Paul McCartney and Sir Mix-A-Lot. That is, something in common other than being British and a pretty decent musician.

The Daily Mail reports that 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.

In 2005 Page was honored with an OBE (Order of the British Empire) for his charity work. The Daily Mail reports that he’s worked with charities like the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund, ChildLine, the Mount Sinai Hospital, MusiCares, the Racehorse Sanctuary and Task Brazil.

At Ultimate Classic Rock we support Page’s knighting, after all he already seems to have grown out the his own version of the Parliamentary powdered wig.

(11/15 correction: We had “if British MP gets HIS way” in the title, since corrected to “her,” our apologies!)
