Muse Receive Honorary Degrees
The Hysteria stars attended a graduation ceremony at the University of Plymouth in their native Devon, south west England, on Friday, where they were presented with honorary doctorate of arts awards. Band members Matt Bellamy, drummer Dom Howard and guitarist Chris Wolstenholme donned the traditional hat and gown attire for the ceremony, which was attended by the university's students and teachers alike.
Singer Bellamy says, "I'm pretty sure we're not worthy. It's nice to be part of something down here. "We never went to university so it really means a lot to us. Maybe now we can go around describing ourselves as doctors!"
And Howard admits the educational honor was an unusual accolade for them to receive. He adds, "Admittedly it's a bit different from the Kerrang Awards (U.K. music magazine awards)."
