>>> well, the piano man is opening up. billy joel took part in a candid town hall discussion with howard stern on monday. it was broadcast live on howard 's show for sirius xm radio . during one exchange, howard pressed billy on why he doesn't write new songs, leading billy to take a swipe at another music legend.
>> i just don't want to. everybody has a hard time understanding that. why don't you write new songs? well, you have to want to write new songs. i don't want to. elton would say the ultimate, why don't you write another album? when are you going to make another album? and i used to say to him, why don't you make less albums?
>> it was good-natured.
>> yeah. later, billy shared the stage with some other stars like tony bennett , melissa etheridge . some good impersonations i heard as well.
>> just some great music. howard is a fantastic interviewer and it's amazing what he gets out of people. i had a good time. it was a lot of fun.
