Dave Grohl inspires at SXSW

Dave Grohl delivers an incredibly inspiring Keynote Address at SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas. Dave’s speech is absolutely remarkable to watch. His sense of humor and personality really shines through. If you are a musician, there is no way possible that you can watch this video and not be even more inspired and dedicated to music.

His speech goes on to recount his Do-it-Yourself  Recordings when he was just 12 years old and also how Nirvana changed his life and how he dealt with the death of Kurt Cobain.  You really have to watch it for yourself.

It possibly can be the best spent 60 minutes you spend to keep your motivation and dedication to music. My favorite quote is when Dave talks about when he first started playing guitar and how it absorbed him.

“I devoted every waking hour to playing music.

It became my religion, 

the record store; my church,

the Rock Stars; my saints

and their songs; my hymns”

Those words there ring true for so many and Dave really does inspire others to pick up that instrument and go ahead and play, write, sing; just find your own voice.

Truly amazing!
