Watch: Bruce Springsteen Rocks SXSW Keynote Speech
In a nearly hour-long address from the stage of the Austin Convention Center at South By Southwest on March 15th, Bruce Springsteen spoke about his life as a musician and the artists who influenced his career.
As Ann Powers wrote, "Springsteen identified himself as a Motown-loving, Sex Pistols-fearing fan of country's Silver Fox — Charlie Rich. He vehemently argued for the belief in popular music as dynamic and flexible, kept alive through constant redefinition by new players and fans."
