New York State of Mind

Who’s that accompanying Billy Joel?

Gotta love this…

Michael Pollack & Billy Joel

First, that’s at my alma mater, Vanderbilt.

Second, for understanding that it is the unexpected that makes most experiences memorable. (You might remember that doing your next show.)

I don’t really care if this was arranged before the evening began, though knowing Billy a bit, at least when we were both much younger, he’s always been a risk-taker so I wouldn’t put it past him to do it exactly as it seems here.

Third: Sometimes it’s really smart to share the spotlight. It increases your luminance.
