Jimmy Page - Politician Proposes Jimmy Page Knighthood

A British politician has launched a new campaign to secure a knighthood for Led Zeppelin rocker Jimmy Page.
Northamptonshire Member of Parliament Louise Mensch, who is married to Muse and Metallica manager Peter Mensch, has officially put forward the guitar great's name for the Queen's upcoming Honours list.
She tweets, "Waiting to see if that finds favour with Honours Directorate. I hope so.
"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."
Page, who was managed by Mensch's husband, was awarded an Order of the British Empire medal in 2005.
