Billy Bragg on Henry Rollins

I’ve had tremendous respect for Billy Bragg’s musical talents for over two decades now. One can argue with his politics, but his songwriting and lyrical skills are top-shelf.

I was channel surfing last weekend and saw that he would be appearing on The Henry Rollins Show, and hit the record button. Watched the show this morning. I can’t find it on the net, but if you can catch a re-run, Bragg’s performance of a quite-updated Waiting for the Great Leap Forwards was a hoot. Stephen William Bragg turns 50 at the end of this year, and it’s impressive that he still has the drive and emotion that made him a great songwriter half his age ago.
