In New York, several lucky ones have been able to enjoy an impromptu concert and street of the very Billy Joel , who found a piano abandoned while he walked his motorcycle and decided to stop and get to touch it. By the date of the publication on YouTube had to happen in more or less a month, but the viralización the video has now been reached. In the video we see the artist in front of an old piano lying on a street in Huntington (Long Island), performing a ragtime, 1917 composed by Shelton Brooks, called “Darktown Strutters’ Ball”, and commenting on the good condition of the instrument.
“he Just needs a bit of tuning, it is perfect! What a pity to throw it away! At least it could be donated to the Church of San Vicente or something,” .
The video has a very bad visual quality, but a representative of Joel has confirmed that it is him.
The singer from the Bronx has been one of the musicians who have been affected by his tour of the coronavirus. In fact I had two very important concert at Madison Square Garden of New York on 19 march and 10 April, but had to be cancelled before the enormous impact of the pandemic in the city.
Yesterday, on the 19th of July, the artist commemorated the 40th anniversary of the smash hit that reached with “It’s Still Rock and Roll To Me” , single, included on his album “Glass Houses” which spent two weeks at number one on the charts of the united States.
“Next phase, New Wave, dance craze, anyways…”
“It’s Still Rock and Roll To Me” was Billboard’s top song on this day in 1980, staying at No. 1 for two weeks in a row! pic.twitter.com/fmbb13uIcF
