Maybe not exactly ever, but it sure seemed that way. After all, unlike recent "keynotes" at the SXSW Music Festival - which have tended to be mere Q&As with an onstage interviewer - Bob Geldof's talk this morning was an actual keynote speech. And an enthralling one at that.

"I was born in Budapest in 1919 into a music-loving family."

So begins George Jellinek's own account of his musical life, as it appeared in the January 1976 issue of our predecessor, Stereo Review - a magazine for which he wrote from 1958 to 1999.

It was clear that The Beatles: Rock Band had fully captivated the imagination of my son Paul when - after hours and hours of playing the new videogame - we all needed to actually take a break and get something to eat.

Heading out the door, I said, "I'll drive."

"No, I'll drive," said Paul, walking over to his car instead.
