After years of begging, borrowing and stealing all the playing time you could, you’re finally in the enviable position of buying your first guitar. Just like your rock icons, soon you’ll be able to drag your instrument to rehearsals, shows and eventually into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But first you have to decide which model is right for you.
Older rock acts are making a ton of money these days touring, but now we’re seeing something a little different from Billy Joel. Starting in January he’ll be playing Madison Square Garden once a month as an artist-in-residence there. It will be fascinating to see how things go with this experiment, as similar runs have worked well in places like Las Vegas. New York is so big, and has so many tourists, that this might make sense with Joel’s large fan base. He hasn’t put out an album in decades but he has avery lotal following. The clip above has him playing MSG for the Concert for New York City back in 2001. Enjoy, and now it will be much easier to see him live in New York again.
