Classic Hits

A couple of years ago, while seeing people in a nursing home, the Today Show had Jimmy Buffett and his group on.  K. Couric was talking to him about his concerts and he mentioned songs they would absolutely have to sing or be killed.  At this point Couric requested they do Margaritaville.  Well Jimmy politely suggested/begged something else but she wouldn't have it.It struck me, watching JB try to squirm out of it that there are probably a lot of musicians out there who absolutely "blow chunks" whenever they have to perform their ancient classics.I wonder if Billy Joel doesn't actually hate "Piano Man."  How many times has he had to perform it in the last 30 years.  I might have a drinking problem too.
