Eagles Honored at Berklee as Artists Perform Their Songs

Matt Dolloff, CBS Radio Boston

Boston’s Berklee College of Music held its 2012 commencement ceremony on Saturday, and awarded honorary degrees to The Eagles and legendary country singer Alison Krauss, among other musicians.

Krauss is the most awarded living recipient at the Grammy Awards, with 27 wins out of 41 nominations, while The Eagles have won six Grammys as a band. Berklee alumni, including Joey Kramer of Aerosmith and producer Quincy Jones, have won a total of 221 Grammys.

According the Associated Press, Berklee, the world’s largest independent college dedicated to contemporary music, also honored alumnus Mulatu Astatke, an influential Ethiopian musician.

As should be expected from a world-class music school, Berklee also honored the recipients with a concert featuring covers of their biggest songs. Check out the best covers of the Eagles from the ceremony in the videos below.
