    Billy Joel is the "Piano Man" so it's fitting that he has been immortalized at New York's Steinway Hall, the home of pianomakers Steinway & Sons.

    A portrait of Joel has been unveiled and will be included in a collection featuring Hungarian composer Franz Liszt. Joel has the distinction of being the only non-classical performer on the company's portrait walls. Wow. That's a big deal and Joel is in some good company.

    Congrats to Billy Joel on this honor.

    Who is your favorite pianist, modern, classical or otherwise?
