    Billy Joel got to watch a Billy Joel concert Wednesday.
    The Piano Man himself was a surprise guest in the audience at Glen Cove's Deasy Elementary School spring concert, "The River of Dreams: A Billy Joel Tribute."
    In the show, kindergartners through second-graders performed 15 songs from various phases of Joel's career.
    "We invited Billy Joel on a lark, but we didn't expect him to come. It was totally thrilling," said Nomi Rosen, Deasy's principal. "We were all beside ourselves."
    Joel drove to the Finley Middle School's Wunsch Art Center, where Deasy's concert was held, a mere 10 minutes from his Centre Island home, via motorcycle. He arrivedhttp://cdn.newsday.com/polopoly_fs/1.7660271.1397087185!/httpImage/image.JPG_gen/derivatives/display_600/image.JPG casually five minutes before the 9:30 a.m. start.
    "I asked him if he wanted to sit in front, but he said he would rather stay in the back so he wouldn't make the kids nervous," Rosen said.
    Parents and staff made a joint effort to invite Joel. Letters were sent, as well as Facebook messages ygquqon his fan page.
    "I found out two minutes before the concert started that he was here and it totally freaked me out. My nerves went sky-high," admitted Rosita Mallo, concert director and music teacher. "This was a very welcomed surprise. It gave the kids extra energy to perform."
    After hearing the kindergartners and first graders, Joel started getting flooded with photo and autograph requests, prompting him to exit early. However, the memory was already made.
    "These kids will have a story to tell how they got to sing for Billy Joel," says Kim Velentzas, 42, of Glen Cove, who was in the audience to see her son Harrison, 7, perform. "For a Long Islander, that's a big deal."

    Howard, "What are they paying Billy to show up there Robin? Nothing? Who does that? Who makes appearances for free?"

    Howard works for a living so he wouldn't be able to go, not to mention he would have to leave early

    Billy Joel rides & restores cool old Moto Guzzis....Wiggy is a big pussy who's afraid of anything remotely dangerous and would never ride a motorcycle.

    Don't understand why people can't just leave the guy alone and watch the show, and Howard is a douche.

    Has he written anything new since that timeframe?
    Could he have been prescribed anti-depressants after his breakdown/addiction problem?
    I wonder if that impacted his creativity......

    Hey dipshit, you're posting with the adults now, not sending a text. Try complete sentences and grammar beyond 3rd grade level Mr. Shitpiles.

    Great story. It's always good to do things for children. Billy is still a modest guy. Howard is a phony bullshitter. I don't know why Billy bothers within.

    Wiggy has spent his whole life pretending to be something he's not. Billy's just been Billy.
