Bruce Springsteen gave the keynote speech at SXSW in Austin the other day. Here it is in it’s entirety, which is a little long but very interesting. He says some pretty great stuff about authenticity, creativity, theft, and what it’s really all about when the lights go down. While he is mostly talking about music, it’s true for any medium in the arts. He also takes you through the history of rock and roll and his influences. Certainly a cool speech if you are a fan of him and his music or not.
