I’ve never paid any attention to Billy Joel as a person. I enjoy his music. I saw him once and it was enough. He had a background singer doing parts he couldn’t.

Cheers Nige, will have a look.

Yes, he's no spring chicken, a lot of older singers get a lot of help from backing singers these days. To be fair, he was never a fantastic vocalist in my book, but he is a fantastic songwriter!

Fantastic player and songwriter, but not someone I left the building thinking “I have to experience this again.”

As a contrast, when I left my first Keith Urban concert, I got home, found his tour dates, and drove to Montgomery, Alabama, to see him play the next weekend. Because I wasn’t one to watch video stations and had never bothered to read his album credits, I didn’t even know he was his own lead guitarist. I was flabbergasted when I saw him. I had never experienced a player like that before.

Plus I was pretty f’d up from losing my dad a few months earlier, so I coped by going to LOTS of concerts! The right music at the right time can help with healing.
