    Default Billy Joel vs. Elton John

    Who is the true Piano Man?

    I have to admit that Billy Joel is my favorite artist of all time, so I like him better, but both are excellent. Vote in the poll.

    A few years ago I saw them in concert together. It was great. I think Billy is the better musician, but Elton had a better rapport with the audience. Either way, the concert was outstanding. They played together, then each one played alone for about a half an hour, then they finished up together. They opened with Your Song and closed with Piano Man.

    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    We need to hear a recording of you in the shower in order to make an informed decision.

    Both are fantastic musicians. I have a bunch of both of their songs.

    I just can't make a choice, this one is too close for me to choose.

    A tie for me.

    At first I thought this was a fight, in which case I'd say Elton by Rear Naked ...

    Otherwise, this is a very tough one to call.

    For some reason I think that Elton John would like putting in the rear naked choke a little bit too much.
