    I adore Coltrane. Let me say that first.


    but Billy Joel, for some odd reason, just holds an extremely special place in my heart. He *is* my piano man.

          Captain Jack
          Piano Man Released: 1973
          Saturday night and you're still hangin' around
          You're tired of livin' in your one horse town
          You'd like to find a little hole in the ground for a while

          So you go to the village in your tie-dye jeans
          And you stare at the junkies and the closet queens
          It's like some pornographic magazine, and you smile

          But Captain Jack will get you high tonight
          And take you to your special island
          Captain Jack will get you by tonight
          Just a little push 'n' you'll be smilin'
          Oh yeah, yeah

          Your sister's gone out, she's on a date
          And you just sit at home and masturbate
          Your phone is gonna ring soon,
          But you just can't wait, for that call

          So you stand on the corner in your new English clothes
          And you look so polished from your hair down to your toes
          But still your fingers gonna pick your nose, after all

          But Captain Jack will get you high tonight
          And take you to your special island
          Captain Jack will get you by tonight
          Just a little push 'n' you'll be smilin'
          Oh yeah, yeah

          So you decide to take a holiday
          You got your tape deck and your brand new Chevrolet
          Ah, but there's no place to go anyway and what for
          You've got everything, but nothin's cool
          They just found your father in the swimming pool
          And you guess you won't be going back to school anymore

          But Captain Jack will get you high tonight
          And take you to your special island
          Captain Jack will get you by tonight
          Just a little push 'n' you'll be smilin'
          La da, da
          Oh yeah, yeah

          So you play your albums and you smoke your pot
          And you meet your girlfriend in the parking lot
          Oh, but still you're aching for the things you haven't got,
          What went wrong

          And if you can't understand why your world is so dead
          And why you've got to keep in style and feed your head
          Well, you're twenty one and still you mother makes your bed
          And that's too long

          But Captain Jack will get you high tonight
          And take you to your special island
          Captain Jack will get you by tonight
          Just a little push 'n' you'll be smilin'
          Yeah, Captain Jack will get you by tonight
          Yeah, Captain Jack will get you by tonight

              I love Coltrane...but Billy Joel is one of my all-time favorites. He kept coming out with good stuff for 25 years and he didn't hang on by producing new albums after the well ran dry. Instead, he kept touring by playing the songs that made everyone love him in the first place.

              The first time I went to Kiel/Savvis Center was for a Billy Joel concert in late 1994. I saw him again in 2000 at the Igloo in Pittsburgh. If he goes on tour again anytime soon, I'll definitely attend.

                It's one of those apples and oranges things. Hard to compare the two. I remember seeing Billy Joel in St Louis in 1985, when all the other acts had elaborate stageshows and bells and whistles, he had a stripped down stage and put on one hell of a show. Gotta go with BJ here too.

                  Yes Crackless. That's me.


                  And that would most certainly be you in yours, correct?

                      BTW, are you related to the other McCracken brothers? If so, my condolences.

                      Do you mean the McGroin brothers? Different group.

                      And I wasn't insinuating that you WERE naked in that picture, or a cam ho or anything. I was just kinda hoping you were.
