You should know better: Judging an artist by what is played on radio and what makes it to the hit parade is like judging an athlete by his/ her scolar degrees. For your information Billy Joel has written many wonderful songs since, and his contribution to classical music has been enormous. There is a huge difference between an artist and an entertainer. Billy Joel didn't steal his icon status, he earned it!
