I love when musicians muse about other musicians and gush about how a particular song or performance inspired them to break into music. When it comes to the Beatles, from their breakout to the swirling sounds of St. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band, the Fab Four has influenced many in the music business today spanning all genres of music.
This brings me to the awesome guest DJ spot SiriusXM has given Billy Joel. The master at the keys will be reflecting on Beatles tracks and how they inspired him starting July 21 on the Beatles Channel (ch. 18). The guest DJ opportunity will also feature Joel playing out his own versions of songs starting with 1964’s Meet the Beatles.
Joel, on the Beatles: “Just like you, I love The Beatles. I still think that they were the best band that ever was. And I’m going to go through their albums and talk about some of the songs that have stayed with me the rest of my life.”
Billy Joel’s premiere guest DJ spot will premiere on Friday, July 21 at 5:00 pm ET and PT on The Beatles Channel via satellite on channel 18. You can also listen in on the SiriusXM app, as well as online at www.siriusxm.com.
