Dr David Gilmour - Anglia Ruskin University Honorary Degree

Post by Keith Jordan »

Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour has been awarded a doctorate from the Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) in Cambridge, England. He will become an honorary doctor of the arts in a ceremony at the Cambridge Corn Exchange on 11th November 2009. The university said the award recognises his "outstanding contribution to music as a writer, performer and innovator".

A total of 21 high achievers will be recognised in ceremonies in Cambridge and Chelmsford, the sites of Anglia Ruskin University's two campuses. Gilmour, 63, is a former student at Cambridgeshire College of Arts and Technology (CCAT), a forerunner of ARU. He achieved worldwide fame with Pink Floyd - whose hits included the anthemic Another Brick In The Wall part 2.

Well done Mr Gilmour!

Perhaps when he has finished recording with Dr Alex Paterson of The Orb on a new album, he can go do a few lectures up and down the country!

A doctorate in Marketing, Business and Administration would have been more appropriate.
