I’m definitely excited about this news, as I’m a massively huge Neil Young fan. Young, one of the best songwriters of all time, has just been confirmed to deliver the keynote kick-off for the 2006 South by Southwest (SXSW) Music Conference & Festival.
Young was just nominated for a couple of Grammys in honor of his recent solo release, Prairie Wind. Plus, filmmaker Jonathan Demme will release his Young concert film, Heart of Gold, early next year. The timing is great, and I can’t wait to see him at SXSW.
