Billy Joel's 'Pianoman'

The BILLY JOEL song 'Pianoman', from his 2nd solo album, has through the years, become his 'Signature Song'. In 1985, the "Official" Pianoman music video was made, replacing the "Original" Pianoman music video. You might remember the 1985 version, but do you remember, or have ever seen, the 1973 "Original" Pianoman video ? This was before MTV ! (Following the 1973 'Original', is the 1985 version)

Today, May 9th, is Billy Joel's Birthday !

Today is BILLY JOEL's Birthday ! BILLY JOEL will celebrate his 65th Birthday tonight, in concert, at New York's Madison Square Garden ! BILLY JOEL will donate ALL proceeds from this May 9th Birthday concert, to the North Shore Animal League, the world's largest animal rescue and adoption organization. Not only will this concert be special, because of the two above mentioned facts, but I heard that some "Special guests" might show up to this SOLD OUT concert, to celebrate BILLY JOEL's Birthday with him !
