    1) The vast majority of Joel's best work was produced before 1983;
    2) In the 31 years since 1983, Joel has produced a vast amount of crap, with some decent songs sprinkled in here and there.

    IMHO, Christie Brinkley ruined Billy Joel, much in the way Beefus ruined Howard. Joel's doo-wop shit of the 1980's is unlistenable dreck and his later stuff, while better, was banal and ordinary at best. There's a reason classic rock stations almost never play anything from after "The Nylon Curtain".

    I thought it would prove that at least SOMEONE was listening to a Sirius project channel.

    I like his "doo wop shit of the 1980s".

    I have been. Hopefully they give that channel a permanent residency.

    Yeah, the Beatles have never received much airplay or critical acclaim. Along with Leslie West and Mountain, they're several highly underrated bands from the 60's.

    Billy Joel is awesome. He's one of those rare performers with just tons and tons of #1 hits. Different styles of music but he's in the Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Sting, Lionel Richie category. Awesome true musicians. Not manufactured cookie cutter Britney Spears horse shit who couldn't sing unless there's a stripper pole greasing her twat.

    The Beatles will never have a channel on Sirius. Not unless they fork over a billion dollars to that slant cook eyed cunt.

    I actually saw Billy Joel in concert when he toured with Elton John a few years back. They put on a great show. :dontknow:

    You are very very correct, sir!
    Springsteen doesn't even belong on the list.
