I wasn't trying to fault Billy Joel, even though I don't like him-- I do think he's extremeley talented & a very good songwriter-- Huey Lewis by comparison is just a very boring dude w/ songs that don't have any big aesthetic quality to them-- they're very faceless, albeit hummable, which some people think is a mark of talent- they're a lot like jingles yes I knew he was part of Clover, but that doesn't make him a great singer & songwriter... He does have a good sense of humor and is a good actor-- a much more welcome presence on the screen then on the radio... i will remain an elitist when there's LOTS of great music out there to be discovered by many that (to me) rates as high as the greatest Raspberries stuff.... stuff like Huey Lewis & The News just gets in the way of good stuff- even good bubblegum Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
