Billy Joel offered a new “Evening of Questions & Answers” at the University of Connecticut campus on Tuesday, November 29th. The event was exclusive for UConn students and covered a wide range of topics. Here is an excerpt from a report by DailyCampus.com:
Grammy winner and Hall-of-Fame performer Billy Joel showed his many faces Tuesday night as he answered questions for a sold-out crowd at the Jorgensen center for the Performing Arts.
After a brief introduction, Joel took to the stage and was met with a standing ovation from a crowd of all ages that was screaming and waving copies of his records.
“I apologize if any of you thought this was a concert,” Joel joked. “That’s not even a real piano.” Dressed in head-to-toe black, he dove right into audience questions with his refreshingly funny sarcasm.
He advised parents on how to support their budding musician children and reiterated that the best way to advance in the music world is to take any job that comes along. “It’s not about the money,” he said, “it had to be about the love of the music.”
