A handful of quotes from this afternoon's Bruce Springsteen keynote address at SXSW:

Springsteen on not listening to music purists: "There's no pure way of doing it, there's just doing it."

Springsteen on musical influences: "Doo-wop was the sound of snaps on bras being popped across the USA."

Springsteen on Roy Orbison: His songs taught us that "the wreckage, the ruin, the heartbreak are all worth it."

Springsteen on Dylan: "Bob's the father of my musical country, now and forever, and I thank him."

Springsteen's advice to SXSW musicians: "You've gotta have iron-clad confidence, and doubt. It keeps you awake and alert."
