Last night (February 25th) in Los Angeles, BILLY JOEL was honored as the 2000 MUSICARES PERSON OF THE YEAR. Tony Bennett, Garth Brooks, classical pianist Richard Joo, jazz artist Diana Krall, Matchbox 20's Rob Thomas joined JON BON JOVI and RICHIE SAMBORA in the musical tribute paid to The Piano Man. Each of the artists performed Billy Joel songs while Joel watched on. JON and RICHIE performed "SAY GOODBYE TO HOLLYWOOD."

BON JOVI appeared at the 2002 Winter Olympic Games Closing Cermonies in Salt Lake City, UT Sunday night before boarding a private jet back to Los Angeles. They attended the Monday rehearsals for the MusicCares event and took part in the press conference as well. The event paid tribute to Billy Joel's accomplishments as a musician and humanitarian.
