Billy Joel was at Woodstock. He drove his motorcycle which was a good thing because–“the highway was a nightmare”. He wanted to see Jimi Hendrix and The Who. He told “Entertainment Weekly”“I didn’t do anything back then,” he said “I drank a beer or something. The first day, I saw Santana or was it Joe Cocker. I was dirty and itchy and covered with poison ivy and I thought, ‘Just get me out of here! I’ve got to use a bathroom.’”But after a day and a half with no real toilet facilities…what am I, a bear? I have to go in the woods? There was a lot of mud and people were smoking a lot of pot and taking a lot of acid but I just wanted to go home.”
Joel has no plans for new music even though he still regularily writes music at home. He became a father again on August 12th when his wife Alexis gave birth to Della Rose Joel.
