Only the Slate die young

Don’t know why I even give this mention, or press, or bother. It is obvious this bonehead didn’t get the tickets he wanted when going to the “BJ” concert years ago. But hey! I have a somewhat equal opportunity blog…and contrary to one buffoon’s opinion, Billy Joel remains all that and more you idiot!

The Worst Pop Singer Ever – Why, exactly, is Billy Joel so bad?

And short of insulting this Ron Rosenbaum like his no-talent ass has done to Joel, I dismiss the article in its entirety, knowing it must have been a really, no I mean r-e-a-l-l-y slow day in the newsroom at Slate.

And, Mr. Rosenbaum, just who are the “so many of us feel it is possible to say Billy Joel is—well—just bad, a blight upon pop music, a plague upon the airwaves more contagious than West Nile virus, a dire threat to the peacefulness of any given elevator ride, not rock ‘n’ roll but schlock ‘n’ roll?” – I want names and for instances beavus.

Phony my foot – Billy is laughing his way to the bank while you, Mr. Rosenbaum, are distined to display your inept writing talents on second fiddle assignments, only getting internet hits because of your editor’s marketing talents of catchy titles.

You will live a long life for sure – only the good die young.

  1. I remember joining you for the Billy Joel concert at KSU! We rode down to Manhattan in the back of TR’s green pickup w/topper, set up a card table and chairs in the back, and played cards! OMG!! How craaaaazy is that? I also remember walking into Ahearn and thinking WOWSERS! This is awesome. Fun times for sure – and Billy Joel is a great performer and such a wonderful musician. A true talent. You go, Tim! Your closing line was AWESOME! “Only the good die young!” I’ll be singing it all day long. :o) bec (Hi, JaiJai – my new BF)


  2. I’m left a bit speechless…I really don’t know where to start…I will say the following…I’m curious if there is anyone who gets to take the guy who wrote this article and pick him apart limb by limb? If not…please let me know…Jasper, Vinny, and myself have a roadtrip to schedule before I go see Billy and Sir Elton in March. The last time I checked it was a free country and this guy can voice his opinion…even if is incorrect and It’s still rock n’ roll to me…
