Good question. I think it would be hard to answer that. I have been to several Billy Joel concerts. And thought he was great on the piano. The one time I saw Barry he was also great on the piano. Here's where comparing them gets tough. They are both very talented. But they also play very different types of music. When I want to listen to music that makes me want to get up and dance, I listen to Billy JOEL. For mellow moods I listen to Barry. Could Billy Joel perform any of Barry's songs as good as Barry does them ? I don't think so. But I could be wrong. Could Barry cover any of Billy Joel's songs ? Maybe a few. I still think trying to compare them is like comparing apples to oranges. That's my opinion.

Yes he does . And I think they are good. His voice is so different from Barry's . It is hard to think of a Manilow song he could do well. But that is only my opinion.
