Anonymous asked: How did you stop worrying if it was cool?

I listened to everything and formed my own opinions. During the process I realized. I could love or hate Billy Joel and it wouldn’t matter to anyone but me. It’s just music and trying to measure up to some made up idea of what is cool is pointless. Just like what you like and don’t feel the like you have to rationalize it.

Looks like I have a trip to NY coming up in 2014.

I am genuinely excited for this.

Looks like Billy keeps on adding shows. This is good news.
