RIP Hutch.......can't believe it's been 25 years but I still remember speaking to my crying cuz on the day.
LOL guilty secret...I know what you mean.
What's the best old song Billy played, besides Piano Man?LOL guilty secret...I know what you mean.
In the late 80s and 90s, I used to see about 3 bands a week in Melbourne, was such an awesome live music scene in Melbourne pre-pokies. Went with a couple of mates who were mainly into rockabilly and punk. Our favorite bands were The Ramones, The Cramps, The Smiths, The Saints...saw them all live except The Smiths.
The thing was, I also liked Billy Joel but I kept this from my mates. I would have been an outcast had they known...you know what it's like when you're young. To my mates it was rockabilly and punk or nothing. I appreciated many genres and still do. When asked what kind of music I like, I usually answer that I don't like death metal and I don't like opera, but anything between them is pretty cool.
Saw Billy on the weekend, was awesome. Funny watching 50/60s something men dancing in the aisle to Billy Joel. Knew all the songs...was just a big singalong.

Goodnight Saigon....geez totally forgot that one. Gets a bit emotional I suppose. Say Goodbye is another great one.Didn't do Honesty.

Didn't think he would play Capt Jack considering his young kids were at the show. You can imagine "Daddy! Daddy! What does the chorus mean in Captain Jack?
