David Gilmour Gains Degree

Angila Ruskin University (ARU) will honor one of its best known alums with a Doctor Of Arts degree in Cambridge November 11.  David Gilmour actually attended Cambridgeshire College of Arts and Technology (CCAT), an institution that was later folded into ARU.  The award is being made in recognition of the one time Pink Floyd guitarist's "outstanding contribution to music as a writer, performer and innovator" - and, we note, in spite of Another Brick In The Wall's scathing dismissal of formal education.  Syd Barrett also attended CCAT.
