A dream came true for Long Island college student Michael Pollack back in January when the Piano Man himself Billy Joel came to visit his school, Vanderbilt University, for a Q&A and performance session. Joel was taking questions for students in the crowd at the event and called upon Pollack. The 18-year-old freshman asked Billy if he could perform New York State of Mind with him which garnered gasps from the audience.
Joel said yes and brought Pollack up on stage. The pair proceeded to kill it…
We believe Billy Joel when he says “remember that name” in regards to Pollack.
