Billy Joel Goes Track by Track with the Beatles’ Studio Albums on SiriusXM's
July 21, 2017 -- SiriusXM announced today that Billy Joel will host various guest DJ sessions on SiriusXM's The Beatles Channel. Joel will comment on songs from every one of The Beatles' original U.S. studio albums.
While sitting at the piano playing snippets of classic Beatles songs, Joel will reflect on every American Beatles LP. The guest DJ sessions will be scheduled in chronological order, starting with 1964's Meet The Beatles.
On the first installment, Billy will share his memories of first discovering The Beatles and play cuts from their first two U.S. Capitol released albums.
"Revisiting The Beatles' album collection through the eyes of a musical icon is a rare treat, and we are honored to do this with Billy. This series will feel like you're sitting down with Billy at home listening to tracks on every Beatles album together, and hearing Billy's rendition of pieces of some songs. The Beatles in the hands and words of Billy Joel is truly something special for our listeners," said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer of SiriusXM.
"Just like you, I love The Beatles. I still think that they were the best band that ever was. And I'm going to go through their albums and talk about some of the songs that have stayed with me the rest of my life," said Billy Joel.
Billy Joel's first guest DJ session will premiere on Friday, July 21 at 5:00 pm ET and PT on The Beatles Channel via satellite on channel 18 and through the SiriusXM app on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online at www.siriusxm.com.
