[www.bbc.co.uk]

US singer-songwriter Billy Joel has become the only non-classical performer to be honoured with a portrait at the prestigious Steinway Hall in New York.

Joel is only one of two living artists to feature in the Hall's portrait collection and will hang next to famed Russian pianist Vladimir Horowitz, one of the singer's idols.

"I don't know how crazy he'd be about having me that close to him," he said.

Well deserved, and marketing himself as "Piano Man" probably didn't hurt...

Did spending >$1M on Steinways influence the decision?? devil smiley

Joel's Steinway fetish is probably as bad as Nigel Tufnel's guitar addiction!
