On August 7th I posted Under the Influence, arguing that musicians do not intentionally borrow the style or riffs of our musical heroes.
Big D and I stumbled across Bruce Springsteen’s Keynote Speech at this year’s SXSW conference in Austin, TX. Skip ahead to 27:00 – 28:50 as he proves me wrong. “Listen up youngsters!” he says. “This is how successful theft is accomplished.”
Who am I to argue? He is, after all, The Boss.
**Warning: The speaker is from Jersey, and is addressing a room-full of musicians. Therefore, an F-Bomb or 12 can be heard in this video.
