It’s been a big week for Roger Daltrey. The Who vocalist was part of the announcement this week revealing that the group would be performing their ‘Quadrophenia‘ album on tour this year. But on top of that, the singer also received an honor from Middlesex University.

NME reports that the vocalist was given an honorary degree and recognized for his contribution to music and acting over a six-decade career. Daltrey was on hand with hundreds of graduating students, some of whom were responsible for providing visuals to his rock opera Tommy.

Daltrey stated, “If I had the power to give honors, the students would be getting extra honorary degrees from me. After having the privilege of working with them on my production of the Who’s ‘Tommy,’ I was amazed with their vision and creativity. I look forward to seeing more of their work knowing that, within the visual creative industries, the future is a bright one. For me, to receive this degree is an honor indeed.”

The fun continues for the Who this summer as they’ll close out the London Olympic closing ceremonies.
