I've been listening to Billy since the late sixties maybe early seventies. And I can't remember one bad song. Only ones I didn't listen closely enough to at first. He's always been one of the Heavy Hitters in my life. Billy, Jackson Brown, Jimmy Hendrix Bob Seger and now its main line but it's my life

I don't like Billy Joel the person. But I've gotta give him mad respect as a songwriter/m u s i c i a n . Hes got a couple songs that I really like but he possess no other traits I find as likeable. So as I think about how after a long hard day he goes home & lays down to sleep, it's in a bed stuffed with $100 bills. Meanwhile I... well I just go the fuсk home, & with nothing to redeem him.... Well he's got my respect & thats better than nothing... Right? Okay fine it's < nothing! From The ♥ of S.Killer

Last year my middle school band went to Bush Gardens for a competition, and after a few hours in the park we headed home. Busch Gardens is 5 hours away from our school and we headed home at 9 pm, knowing that we could sleep on the bus. At 2 am we hear a large bang and before we know it our bus driver was ushering everyone off the bus and yelling "SOMEONE CALL 911!" after we reached a safe distance we turned around to find our bus completely engulfed in flames. Luckly no one was hurt and we wer
