Glenn is a huge Billy Joel fan and says several songs of his describe Glenn’s life to perfection. So, naturally, Glenn jumped at the chance to see Joel in concert and reminisce about his alcoholic past and attended with co-host and best friend Pat Gray. Soon after the show began, Glenn quickly regretted his decision.
Here's what Glenn had to say about the concert on Facebook:
Left Billy Joel early. Disappointed.
Was it the fact that he was 90 minutes in before he played one of his real hits? Maybe but all his music is good.
Was it that he meandered and seemed to talk to the band more than the audience?
Maybe but that band sounded great.
Was it that there we just too many fall down drunk people in a very tight row?
Maybe but that is what happens at a concert. Get over it.
Was it that with all of those things I wished I were home with my wife and kids instead? Yep.
There are too many demands on our time and things are way too expensive to stay for someone who, as good as he is, seems to be phoning it in.
Pat and I may have been the only ones that felt that way.
Sorry billy. I literally have every album you have ever made, I have seen you five times.
I hope it was just us and we were the ones having an off night.
He didn't have much nicer things to say about the concert on radio, but did advocate for an AA or non-drinking section for people like him at concerts.
"So all these people were just hammered out of their mind. Given, I'm an alcoholic, so I have less tolerance for that. I would just like an AA section. I would like to go with a group of people that don't mind being sober," Glenn said.
Glenn also criticized Billy Joel for seemingly being not into the performance or the crowd.
"We were talking about this last night. Michael Bublé loves his audience, loves to perform, and once you stop liking the audience you should stop performing," Glenn said. " I didn't feel any gratitude, any affinity for me at all."
