Default Billy Joel Has Nothing On Elton John

Billy Joels' material was exceptional for his time. However, Elton John banged his way through the decades with number powerful hits.

Both have great conceptual ideas but I just feel that Elton Johns' are stronger and instant classics for all time.

I'd imagine Elton gives a lot better BJ's than Billy so I can see why someone would "give him the nod".

OH it's Elton without a doubt. He seems to have moved effortlessly from one style of music to another and has so many greatest hits there are like four editions to choose from! Billy Joel has made some great albums also, but I think if you put their careers side by side and compare them Elton John has got the edge! I would just like to say that it is a musical blessing that both these gentlemen have got the careers that they have had.
