Billy Joel sits down with Pollstar to discuss his extensive career and more.
“With his last album of new pop/rock material released in 1993, Joel, with his forever agent Dennis Arfa, has focused on his live career, forgoing quantity for quality, mixing stadiums with his ongoing and groundbreaking monthly franchise gig at Madison Square Garden to stunning effect and sky-high box office numbers. The touring grind and sheer ambition of his early career, along with his canon of sturdy, beloved songs, are paying dividends in what would be retirement age for most folks, especially those hailing from humble beginnings in Long Island’s Oyster Bay. Frankly, he’s too good. Besides his considerable chops, Joel connects with an audience, and these days, he doesn’t have to jump off the piano to come across.” – Pollstar
