Gutsy Audience Member Accompanies The Billy Joel in “A New York State of Mind”


Wow! Watch as Michael Pollack, a piano student from New York, stands up at a Billy Joel Q&A event and asks the star if he can accompany him on his favorite song. Michael has always been a huge fan of Billy Joel’s music and when given the opportunity to play with his legendary idol, he just couldn’t pass it up – he takes a chance and life hands him an opportunity above and beyond anything that he ever expected.

Michael Pollack’s story is a perfect example of the fact that if you don’t ask for what you want, the answer will always be “no.” He is an inspiration to go after what you want even when you don’t think you’re going to get it, because you never know what life may throw at you when you least expect it.
