The quoted image cuts off at the bottom of the Canadian money gif, so at first glance it looked like you were calling that "fucking dumb". Which I read and immediately thought "No fuck you, Mr Boogie, YOU are fucking dumb, that Canadian money trick is sweet!"

I took that thought back almost as soon as it appeared though. :lol:

Today I learned that you can't buy front row tickets to a Billy Joel concert. Apparently years ago Billy Joel got sick of looking at bored spoiled rich people in the front row. So now the front row doesn't get sold, and before the show his road crew goes and hauls people out of the worst seats to fill out the front row, so that Joel can look at "real fans who are happy and excited to be there" while he performs.

Good guy Billy Joel. :lol:

Billy Joel's response when asked about the front row tickets:

"I’d look down and see rich people sitting there, I call ’em “gold chainers.” Sitting there puffing on a cigar, “entertain me, piano man.” They don’t stand up, make noise, sit there with their bouffant haired girlfriend lookin’ like a big shot.

I kinda got sick of that. Who the hell are these people, where are the real fans?

It turns out the real fans were always in the back of the room in the worst seats."

"We don’t want to play to big shots, I want to play to younger people, people who can only afford a low ticket price. They make the best audience, they make the most noise, they’re the most enthusiastic.​
It’s just hard to get to them anymore.​
I tell the audience every night, I hope you didn’t pay more than face value on that ticket, because we ain’t worth more than that, and you ain’t gonna get any more than that.​
We now hold those tickets, and I send my road crew out to the back of the room when the audience comes in and they get people from the worst seats and bring ’em in to the front rows.​
This way you’ve got people in the front row that are really happy to be there, real fans."​

This is false, he joined survivor after eye of the tiger was released wich was sung by their previous lead singer, I'm sure he sung it live somewhere obviously but he's not the original singer everyone recognizes from that song.
