This is pretty cool.

A dream came true for Long Island college student Michael Pollack back in January when the Piano Man himself Billy Joel came to visit his school, Vanderbilt University, for a Q&A and performance session. Joel was taking questions for students in the crowd at the event and called upon Pollack. The 18-year-old freshman asked Billy if he could perform New York State of Mind with him which garnered gasps from the audience.

awesome video, thanks Chuck!!

when he started singing I said woe, Billy is channeling Joe Cocker and then a moment later I said woe, he is channeling Ray Charles...:hihi:

That was really cool of him to do. I wish I had gone to one of his concerts but that is always a premium ticket.

Somewhere out there, Mr. Blue Sky sheds a tear and then begins a slow clap in appreciation
Nah. He's too busy pressing his Barry Manilow shirts.
