Re(3): Anyone a fan of Billy Joel? IP: 18.104.22.168 Posted on January 31, 2018 at 11:24:32 AM by Martin
Yeah. Billy Joel is a fabulous songwriter.I especially like that song he wrote for Vietnam vet about Vietnam. There is story about Billy Joel's early days which I've always indentified with. Too long to go into here, but basically about his first album, being pressed at the wrong speed. He brings it home, invites his friends round, they play it. It's been given 'the sweetener' too much of the sweetener. The vocal now sounds like micky mouse. Humiliated and pissed off, he leaves NY goes to the other coast and takes a job as a piano player in a bar. Guess what comes out of that? I have a not dissimilar story about MY first EP. Replies:
