Foo Fighters frontman and Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl is slated to be keynote speaker for SXSW Music 2013. The keynote will take place on Thursday, March 14, 2013 at the Austin Convention Center, the hub of SXSW Music events. Following the end of Nirvana, Grohl took center stage, forming Foo Fighters, on whose 1995 self-titled debut he wrote, recorded and sang every note–save for one guitar track. Foo Fighters have since grown into arguably the last great American arena/stadium rock band, with 2011's Wasting Light debuting at #1 in the U.S. and 11 other countries while over the years The Colour & The Shape (1997), There Is Nothing Left To Lose (1999), One By One (2002), In Your Honor (2005), Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace (2007) have raked in 11 Grammy Awards, sold 25 million copies and spawned anthems like "Everlong," "Monkey Wrench," "My Hero," "Learn To Fly," "All My Life," "Best Of You," "The Pretender," "Walk," and more.
