Jimmy Page wins UN peace award
Electric guitar player Jimmy Page has been handed a United Nations (UN) peace prize after announcing plans for a Show of Peace concert.
The Led Zeppelin star was given the inaugural Global Peace Award from the UN's Pathway to Peace organisation.
Page said that the honour meant a lot and was a tribute to the power of music.
"Music has been the most powerful language to reach the hearts of people around the world," he stated.
"During my career, I've experienced the connection and harmony that music can bring."
The award was given to him after Page announced he will be performing a free concert in Beijing this April.
Other performers at the event, which aims to promote green initiatives and peaceful causes, include Aerosmith electric guitar player Joe Perry.
Earlier this month, page told the Times that he really enjoyed playing improvised electric guitar solos when he was on stage with Led Zeppelin.Posted on 19 Jan 2010 10:15 to category : Band / Celebrity News
