Under The Flyover listens in as Billy Bragg goes to The BRIT

Waiting for the great leap forward: BRIT School principal Stuart Worden (left) interviewing Billy Bragg

Forty years since the release of his Life’s A Riot album, singer-songwriter Billy Bragg visited the world-famous BRIT School in Selhurst last week to talk about his career, answering questions from pupils.

In a wonderfully frank, inspiring and insightful Q&A session, Bragg recommended that zigging when everyone else is zagging is a useful premise on which to base a career in the creative industries.

Massive thanks to Principal Stuart Worden, who conducts a mean Q&A session, and all the lovely people at the BRIT School.

And thanks, too, to the ever-bright shooting star, Billy Bragg.
