Howard Stern Interviews Billy Joel — Ask For His Favorite Song

Written by , Posted in General

Billy Joel appeared on Howard Stern’s show today to promote his new documentary, The Last Play at Shea. The documentary chronicles his 2008 performance at Shea Stadium, just before it closed down. Stern went easy on Joel and stuck mostly to music questions. That’s likely because Stern and Joel are good friends, and Stern therefore felt uncomfortable asking about the breakdown of his marriages. I know this because I avidly listen to Stern, who is pretty consistent in badgering his guests about their personal lives (which is usually my favorite part of his interviews). Though I was disappointed that those questions weren’t asked, I did enjoy the part where Stern asked Joel for his favorite song. Joel picked quite a few, and I’ve posted one below — it’s Summer Highland Falls. Summer, Highland Falls by bradenbost

  • Billy Joel is a classic artist. Since you mentioned songs, it reminded me of my Disney favorites! But what amused me was when I learned that there’s a Wilma Flintstone song! Just downloaded it and quite a good tune to jam with while reading articles.
