(hennemusic) Rockers are being honored with degrees all over the UK this summer. First it was Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson (Queen Mary University, London), then former Deep Purple keyboardist Jon Lord (University Of Leicester), and now Jeff Beck has been added to the list.

All three musicians have received Honorary Doctor Of Music degrees, with Beck picking his up at the University of Sussex.

Your Local Guardian reports Beck, who was born in Wallington and lived on Demesne Road, spent his early years singing in a church choir before going on to form The Rumbles in neighboring Croydon. more on this story
