Watch ‘5 Questions With Billy Joel’ By Stony Brook University

Billy Joel has participated in a new web-based video series called “5 Questions With” produced by Stony Brook University on Long Island in New York. Stony Brook has launched the series featuring exclusive, thought-provoking video interviews with 40 luminaries who have achieved worldwide prominence in their fields or have visited the campus to speak at student and community enrichment events and activities.

In Billy’s interview, he reveals when he first realized he enjoyed performing: “When I was in third grade I got up on stage and I did my Elvis Presley impression, and I sang ‘Hound Dog’ and the girls in the fourth grade started screaming, and I said to myself ‘there’s something going on here’ — this is kind of cool if the girls in the fourth grade are screaming for a kid in the third grade.”
