NOTE: Maybe it was Action Bronson sampling “Zanzibar” (and paying for it with Mark Ronson’s money) or the shook-up goodwill from Plant’s set but I’d never been readier to give Billy Joel a fair trial and luckily, his excellent re-evaluation barely required one. Joel kicked off with “My Life” and “Pressure,” which both share a drive that splits the difference between Randy Newman and Steely Dan more than any of the Tin Pan Alley stuff he’s more known for. That is, he capped a weekend of proudly professional winners with two hours of purely pleasurable studio rock and late-night talk show-style patter and recurring gags, many involving a flyswatter he brandished all evening. He did a song from his very first record (“I don’t even have a copy of that album”), and after playing “She’s Always a Woman,” brusquely commented, “That was for one of my ex-wives.”
