Captain Jack
Beatle Stories
Paul McCartney says just the way you are is the song he wished he'd wrote. I was unaware Billy even wrote that but it's still some accolade from a genius
Benny Hill
Hey you Colbert, You are in the presence of ROYALTY there, if he says \

God, Colbert is such a horrific interviewer.
Cosmin Xxx
damn! that guy putting him to work when he saw he's faking. that's a person that knows to spot a kid that loves his idol. maybe 90% of the men would turn the kid around and throw him out in kicks.i like people that know how to come down to the ground to others and talk their language and give a hand to someone that has a dream,people that do no forget that is the fans that bring the money to the show.and sometimes that action may even turn around lives ,inspire future singers.than a few years later we get Billy Idol,the kid with the cables that now is a \

Just the way you are is my favorite
David Oatman
First seen Billy play when he was the opening act for the Doobie Brothers. Some of the fans were hardcore Doobie fans. They constantly were yelling Dobbies and gave Billy no chance to get going. You could understand why he was really annoyed with this. He stopped and said I've been paid so if you don't want to hear me the Dobbies will not be out till their scheduled time . I can leave and you can look at an empty stage till Dobbies. Once the loudmouths shut up he blew everyone away. Been a life long fan and it was one hell a concert in the end.

Saw him last night. He mentioned this interview and clarified that his favorite songs are always changing, then proceeded to play Vienna. He was incredible
Eric Bell
One thing that sets Billy Joel above Elton John is the depth of his albums. Elton had a bunch of legendary hits, Tiny Dancer my favorite, but Billy Joel's albums are filled with hidden gems where too much of Elton's albums is just \
Eric Burns

5) She's Always a Woman 4) Anthony's Song 3) Vienna 2) New York State of Mind 1) Scenes from an Italian Restaurant -- Wow, hard to get it down to 5 without leaving so many great songs out. I could make a top 5 from The Stranger album alone.

RIP Downeaster Alexa
Gary Bolen
When I used to play Star Wars Galaxies, my character was Dizzy Jay, a musician. I parodied Billy's Piano Man into Kloo Horn Man. I would use the name of whatever NPC bartender was working at the cantina I was in and sing \
Gaurav Arya
My all time favourite is honesty
Glenn Martin
I knew Billy Joel back in 1971-72 because one of my best friend's (Alan Hertzberg) was his guitarist. I hung out with Billy many times back then. Through Alan and Billy I became close friends with Billy's drummer Rhys Clark. I'm still in contact with Rhys to this day. I haven't seen Alan since the 90's. Shit happens. You lose touch with with people over the years

I had no idea what a delightful man Billy Joel was!! I always get stuck at the music when anyone is that supernaturally talented. That Jimi Hendrix story is bloody amazing, and Stephen's Paul Simon - Graceland was cool too. Billy has what my Mum, God rest her, who grew up on Long Island, called, \

The loudest I’ve ever screamed in my life was when he asked “Vienna or Just The Way You Are?” at his concert\nVienna is what i started really singing on, i first performed it in 6th grade, and it’s always had a special place in my heart. My lifelong dream was to see him in concert, and it was better than i could have ever imaged.
