Billy Joel Does Not Think "Piano Man" Is That Great

Billy Joel has notched a ton of hits throughout his long career, none more recognizable than "Piano Man." But in a new interview with The New York Times, Joel says that if it weren't for his fans' passion for the tune, he'd likely never play it again live. "I don’t think it’s that good a song," says Joel. "It’s a story song...more of a folk song than a pop tune. It’s in 6/8 time, which is a waltz, about these losers in a bar. But people love it. There’s a lot of my songs I could never hear again and live quite happily."
