Billy Joel's quotes

  • I'd rather laugh with the sinners, than cry with the saints.
  • There's nothing better than good sex. But bad sex? A peanut butter and jelly sandwich is better than bad sex.
  • [on recording "We Are the World"] I remember most of us who were there didn't like the song, but nobody would say so. I think Cyndi Lauper leaned over to me and said, "It sounds like a Pepsi commercial.". And I didn't disagree.
  • It's weird you know, the values. Jonas Salk invented the polio vaccine yet I'm worth more money than he is.
  • On a three-week commitment after attempting suicide at age 21: I'd go up to the nurse's window and say, "Hey, I'm okay, but these other people are really crazy." They'd just hand me my Thorazine.
  • I know: rich bastard. I used to feel awkward about it, but I shrugged it off. It's all luck and sweat. But I earned it - though I can't justify the amounts.
  • I looked like Bubbles the Chimp.
  • [2008, on being a rock star at age 59] I'm from Long Island; I'm not going to delude myself. I know what I look like. And I want them to know that I know how absurd all this is.
  • I'm just this shlubby guy who plays the piano.
  • I've been able to make a living as a musician, and that's the greatest blessing of all. The fame, the wealth, the awards, and all that, that's all gravy.
  • I went into a deep, deep depression after 9/11. 9/11 just knocked the wind out of me, and I don't know even now if I've recovered from it. It really, really hurt that man could do that to man.
  • Honestly, I'm fresh out of ideas. I told myself once I had nothing else to write about, I was done making new records.
