The Concert of a Lifetime

This photo is one of the most glorious things I have ever seen: Two of the greatest American songwriters of all time performing together live on stage. Anyone who wasn't at Billy's musical farewell to Shea Stadium yesterday really missed something incredible.

If I could assemble a fantasy lineup for a concert, Billy Joel and Paul McCartney would definitely be the headliners. (I might add Frank Sinatra in his 1950s prime, but I don't want to get greedy.) Just imagine the set list! Uptown Girl followed by Jet followed by We Didn't Start the Fire followed by Hey Jude followed by Piano Man? I'm getting chills just thinking about it.

The fact that these venerable troubadours performed together at all gives me hope that maybe the Billy and Paul Concert Tour isn't far behind. I think these guys could really rock Wrigley.

Now it's your turn. Who would perform in the Concert of Your Lifetime?

Is Paul McCartney American?

Most of his money is American...close enough. ;-)

My blog is still definitely a work in progress, like getting a better template since I don't know HTML. Plus, how can I compare to the great Matt P's new media skills? ;)
