New Billy Joel Q&A – What Is Your Relationship With Your Band, And How Do You Handle Any Mistakes They Make?

Alexander Joel helps with this 12th question from our Nuremberg series, which is described here in its literal translation from German: “During your 2-year tour, were there any problems with the band and your relationship with the band, and were there any screw-ups with saxophone players?” Billy dives into the deeper essence of the question, which concerns his role in the band, the dynamics of a band on the road, and his “theory of mistakes.” He covers a lot of ground here, referencing The Rolling Stones, Vladimir Horowitz, and the sagest advice of jazz great, Stan Getz. You’ll enjoy this verbal waltz with Classical, Rock and Jazz influences, all illuminated here in our Billy Joel “Questions & Answers” lecture series.
