Billy Joel saved the day (or night) at the Elton John / Billy Joel concern on July 11th in Nationls Ball Park in Washington, DC. Elton walked out shortly after the opening duet after claiming that a pedal on his piano did not work and left Billy to figure out what to do next. Billy even tried to fix Elton's piano by throwing off his jacket and crawling under the piano but Elton stormed out anyway. What happened after that was an absolutely great concert by Billy alone with crowds totally drawn to the magnificient performance. Elton did finally return after an exhausted Billy give all he could but Elton's performance was sort of a "candle in the wind" when compared to Billy's earlier smash. I was sort of equal towards both performers but now only back Billy as both a great performer and someone who actually cares about his audience and his other band members.
Thanks Billy - I'm looking forward to your next event (hopefully without Elton next time).
The whole thing was a great experience and we enoyed it immemsly.
