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."
