For straight piano, I prefer Elton John, though I prefer Billy Joel's voice and lyrics.

Both are great, of course, the above are just my preferences. I can say that I own a heck of a lot more Billy Joel CDs than I do Elton John CDs.

Early Elton John.
Everytime I listen to Tumbleweed Connection, Madman Across The Water or Honky Chateau I gotta wonder what the hell happend to "this" guy.

Hard pick, but I'm partial to early Bill Joel, especially 52nd Street and The Stranger, two of my all time favorite albums.

My GF likes Joel's music more even though I have always favored John's. So bottom line is it depends on who's driving.

Billy Joel. He is the Piano Man.

Sing us a song you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us feeling alright
