Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler has been awarded an honorary doctorate in music.

When accepting the accolade from the BERKLEE COLLEGE OF MUSIC in Boston, USA on Saturday (10MAY03), the CRAZY singer recalled telling his mother when he was four years old he wanted to be a musician.

He says, "A career in music is a road that's constantly under construction. Mine was paved with passion, ambition and a series of extremely lucky mistakes."

He describes music as "a refuge for everyone who thinks in rhyme, walks in rhyme and dreams of melody".
