SXSW

Dave Grohl was born to be a performer. From the applause of his first cries, which you'll hear about below, he has proven himself an accomplished rock star (Nirvana, Foo Fighters), documentary director (Sound City: Real to Reel), and now engaging public speaker. This year, Grohl was honored as the Keynote Speaker at the South By Southwest conference, and though last year's speaker, Bruce Springsteen, may have laughed at the news and wished him luck, Grohl's speech was as entertaining as it was instructive and inspiring. If you missed his fantastic keynote speech, you can listen to it and watch it here now:
