    Since watching the Billy Joel episode of A Life On The Road, I've found a new appreciation for some of his music.
    He turns 70 today and if anyone here is going to see him tonight you're in for a bit of a treat. No, Brian won't be getting up to sing with Billy cos Jonna's in England but I hope plenty of videos end up on YouTube.

    Actually listened a lot to Billy Joel as a teen:) That's why I appreciate even more that he gives credit to AC/DC. Great artist. Cool guy.

    Is Jonna in England on band business?

    I've never been much of a Billy Joel fan, but definitely a few good tunes!

    Anyone found the clip of Brian's message to Billy that he recorded for last night's show?

    Amazingly underrated song from Billy Joel's Glass Houses album:




    The lyrics would have made for a great AC/DC song in the 80's:

    Blackout, heatwave, .44 caliber homicide
    The bums drop dead and dogs gone mad
    In packs on the West Side
    Young girl standing on a ledge looks like another suicide
    She wants to hit those bricks
    Cause the news at six gotta stick to a deadline
    While the millionaires hide in Beekman Place
    The bag ladies throw their bones in my face
    I get attacked by a kid with stereo sound
    I don't want to hear it but he won't turn it down
    Life is tough but it's just enough
    To hold back the tears until it's closing time
    I survived, I'm still alive
    But I'm getting close to the borderline
    Close to the borderline

    A buck three eighty
    Won't buy you much lately on the street these days
    And when you can get gas
    You know you can't drive fast anymore on the parkways
    Rich man, poor man, either way American
    Shoved into the lost and found
    The no nuke yell we're gonna all go to hell
    With the next big meltdown
    I got remote control and a color T.V.
    I don't change channels so they must change me
    I got real close friends that will get me high
    They don't know how to talk and they ain't gonna try
    I shouldn't bitch, I shouldn't cry
    I'd start a revolution but I don't have time
    I don't know why I'm still a nice guy
    But I'm getting close to the borderline
    Close to the borderline

    I thought I'd sacrifice so many things
    I thought I'd throw them all away
    I didn't think I needed anything
    But you can't afford to squander what you're not prepared to pay
    I need a doctor for my pressure pills
    I need a lawyer for my medical bills
    I need a banker to finance my home
    But I need security to back my loan
    It isn't new what I'm going through
    But everybody knows you got to break sometime
    Another night I fought the good fight
    But I'm getting closer to the borderline
    Closer to the borderline

    Goodnight Saigon is in my top 3 songs of all time. Still gives me the goosebumps after all these years!
