He just plays the same songs over and over. River of Dreams? Good god, how is that nonsense even considered music? Piano Man? Oh, nostalgia, wah wah wah. He's a homeless man's Elton John and if he wasn't from here nobody here would care.

That was an amazing show, or was it the pot?

If you don't care for him, how is it that you know so much about him ?

So by your twisted logic, the rest of the country and world for that matter thinks nothing of him. I really doubt all the money he has came only from Long Islanders. He did pretty well for a homeless man's Elton John, didn't he?

I'm asking this here cause I don't know where else to ask:

If I'm taking the LIRR from New Hyde Park to Woodside and then from Woodside to Shea, do I need two separate tickets or just one?

Thanks

It would probably be faster to take the train from Port Washington since your so close.

While that's correct, the whole idea is to not have to drive. I can walk to NHP, but it's a 20 minute ride to Port Wash.

Remember: Long Island is home to the only radio show in the entire world devoted to the music of our own Billy Joel. "Piano Man" is heard 100% commercial-free every Sunday afternoon from 2PM to 3PM on LI's 90.3FM.

Newsday forgot to note that when The Who played Shea in 1982, The Clash opened for them, which was huge. Quite the double bill.
I was there - great show!

I feel bad for the young chick who married him for his money. Sure, she got a lot of good things, but the poor thing has to bang that old lush.
