RE: Best Band/Musician of the 1970s

While it’s no reflection of record sales, I’d say Billy Joel. Billy Joel’s peril was being too talented…so much so that he didn’t really find a recognizable sound. Take “For the Longest Time” and compare to “We didn’t start the fire”…the man has musical range that is really incomparable to any other major artist of the era. He wasn’t the most liked, he wasn’t the most bought…but he was probably the most talented.
