"I'm called a doctor now. Don't worry, I won't open a surgery," Cocker said as he accepted the honor, according to the BBC. "But I guess if you are a songwriter maybe I could have some kind of musical surgery."

Cocker joins the likes of Paul McCartney, Alice Cooper, Bob Geldof and Patti Smith who have been awarded honorary doctorates from various universities for their contributions to popular culture.
