Billy Joel was involved in his third car accident over a two-year period on April 25, 2004, a string of mishaps that had model ex-wife Christie Brinkley openly wondering whether their daughter should be riding with him.
Billy Joel was at Vanderbilt University for a Q&A when a student stood up and asked a bold question. He asked if he could accompany Joel on stage for a performance of "New York State of Mind". What happens next gave me goosebumps. Well done Michael Pollack.
Billy Joel is filling out his his recently announced hometown concert residency with a series of tour dates throughout 2014. Scattered among the New York City shows Joel has lined up in 2014 are a bunch of new concerts that will keep him busy across the U.S. through summer.
