Billy Joel Revists the Beatles

“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,” explains 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,” says 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. Joel’s performance will also be online at www.siriusxm.com.
