Watch Dave Grohl’s SXSW 2013 keynote speech
Dave Grohl has been class president of rock ‘n’ roll since the ‘90s, and Thursday he gives his “state of the union” for the genre.
Grohl gives the centerpiece talk at SXSW Thursday, and it’s streaming at NPR Music. The 44-year-old Foo Fighters frontman has most recently been busy with with his “Sound City” documentary and the Sound City Players live project, and prepping work on a new Foo Fighters record. Last year’s keynote was a well-received career-spanning talk wth Bruce Springsteen.
The always-congenial and outspoken Grohl will likely have much to say on the current state of rock, recording technology and how artists can hope to make a living in a digital economy. We’ll have a full recap and discussion to come, but in the meantime, watch it right here.
