Knighthood Proposed for Jimmy Page

A British MP has proposed knighthood for Jimmy Page, saying that “nobody is more worthy of knighthood.” While that is perhaps overstating things, here’s a quick rundown of pros and cons as the UK’s powers that be assess the situation:

Pros:

  • Page has already been awarded the OBE in 2005 for his work with impoverished Brazilian children.
  • There is precedent. See: Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Elton John and, yes, Tom Jones.
  • The “Heartbreaker” solo.

Cons:

  • The MP’s husband happens to be Page’s former manager.
  • A decade’s worth of debauchery that involved plenty of heroin and, possibly, a shark.
  • Page’s purchase of Aleister Crowley’s castle and his rather strong devotion to the occult.
