RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Former Led Zeppelin guitarist
Jimmy Page has been made an honorary citizen of Rio de Janeiro for his work with underprivileged kids in the Brazilian city.
Page was presented with the honor at a ceremony on Tuesday at Casa Jimmy (Jimmy's House), a facility set up in 1997 in the Rio district of Santa Teresa with funds from the veteran rocker.
"The greatest satisfaction is not the decoration. It is knowing that I am able to help someone who needs help," Page said.
