Mark Ronson catches 'em young

Mark Ronson has revealed that he actually nurtures talent by making contact with people before they get famous:

"People think I'm very well connected because I know famous singers but that's only because I've worked with them and met them before they were famous. I guess the key is to befriend people you think will become famous in the future, which requires a lot of instinct and a bit of luck.

"I'm on a roll now. I just stand outside the Brit School and the Sylvia Young Theatre School and wait for future famous kids to come out and just get their numbers."

So, then - stand around outside schools, asking kids fur phone numbers with the words "I'll get in touch when you're a little older". Can't see that going wrong in any way.
