In a recent interview, Billy Joel addressed the impact that Taylor Swift has had on the younger generation.
He said, “She’s like that generation’s Beatles.” Joel also credits his kids for helping keep up with the newer generation’s music.
He continued, “There are a lot of younger people now looking backward and they like their parents’ music, which is a strange phenomenon. I’ll be in the car with [my kids] when they make me turn [the radio] on and I might hear a reference to me.”
Joel added, “Taylor (Swift) is also a very talented girl and she’s productive and keeps coming up with great concepts and songs and she’s huge.”
