How cool would it be to walk down the street, watch a guy get off his motorcycle and start jamming on a piano that was left on the sidewalk. That’s exactly what happened. Billy Joel was spotted riding around in Long Island, NY and playing some awesome piano tunes on an upright piano that seemed to be abandoned on the side walk. He was wearing his motorcycle helmet and vest. Someone was able to get some video of him playing and can be heard saying,
“Those are laminated keys.” And “Not bad. The action is good. It just needs tuning and the finish is beat. It’s a perfectly good piano. It’s a shame to throw it out. At least donate it to St. Vincent de Paul or something.”
Of course he would know those sorts of things about a piano… he is a Piano Man.
