Blur bassist turned foodie, Alex James, has been given an Honorary Doctorate of Arts from Bournemouth University. James, who grew up in Bournemouth, accepted the honor with a speech that opened thusly: “I would just like to say a few words to you about cheese.” He went on to express his love of cheese, advising, “If you find something you love just go after it with all guns blazing.” He went on to stress the importance of higher education, particularly in the arts because, well, you can meet your future bandmates there.
