Which Billy? I just assumed Billy Joel. In which case, my answer is Elton! :)

I think Elton had more good years but I stopped listening to either of them almost 30 years ago... but back in the day Goodbye Yellow Brick Road was the first non-kid album I owned.

Elton John is the King! He was a very prolific writer of great songs, especially during his "golden era" from 1970 to 1976. Plus, I still don't know what "Billy" you're referring to, Billy Holiday? Billy Joel? Billy Crystal? He,he.

they both did some great albums, and even though Elton kind of lost it in 80s, i would still have to pick him for the amazing streak of albums he had in the 70s.

Elton never grew on me. He's a great entertainer but I choose Billy Joel. At least I can listen to a whole album by him.

Between Elton Motello and Billy Bremner, I think the latter was a better musician. :)

(if you're asking about John and Joel, I have no opinion. I'd rather listen to Diamanda Galas)

Billy Joel is one of the only solos that can make a 5 star album with no filler. So I go for Billy Joel.

Elton actually had a run of damn good songs and albums from 1971 until about 1978. The second half of a song like "Love Lies Bleeding" rocks just as good as almost anything I've heard.

Billy ? An overexposed egomaniac who can't decide whether he wants to be Chopin or Fats Domino. Does he have some good songs ? Yeah, sure. But his arrogance and that stuffy, snobbish Long Island accent he continually carries around sink his music for me.

Are you joking...Billy isn't worthy of tuning Elton's piano!!!

This is a tough one. It's like choosing between a Walrus and a Manatee. But I'll have to go with Elton cause Billy tried to kill himself once by drinking furniture polish. What up with that?

Posted on Jun 3, 2010 2:31:19 PM PDT
Yeah. But Elton's suicide attempt was better. Put his head in a gas oven, but not until he had opened all the windows.

As a piano player since childhood, I would have to give the nod to Sir Elton John, the former Reginald Dwight, a/k/a Captain Fantastic. While I still listen to both, Sir Elton keeps me interested with some of his recent work.
