New Billy Joel Q&A – Can I Accompany You On 'New York State Of Mind?'

Billy held "An Evening of Questions and Answers and a Little Bit of Music" last month at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn. During the session, student Michael Pollack, a Long Island native, asked if he could accompany Billy on piano and perform "New York State Of Mind." Here is the complete video of their performance together. Nice going Michael! You can watch this and other videos in our Billy Joel "Questions & Answers" lecture series.

Re: New Billy Joel Q&A – Can I Accompany You On 'New York State Of Mind?'

I've been a fan since 1977. Grew up in Westbury, LI. Live out west now, but whenever in NY - family, friends, acquaintances, cab drivers and whomever crosses paths with the incomparable B. Joel title you "the nicest celebrity ever". The moment with Michael, just yet another example. A moment that was a gift to you both. The looks of mutual and sheer appreciation between the two of you shattered that room. Thank you to whomever caught such an epic moment...

It's fantastic to see how you give someone else the opportunity to play with you! Michael is really talented, and you Billy, are still the best.

Phenominal. Kid plays brilliantly. Voice is better than ever. I meet so many accomplished musicians who are simply not able to be as gracious and encouraging. Not sure why that is, but it's sad. Thank you for being above all else: kind.
