Quote of the Week- Billy Joel

We are doing our quote of the week today instead of Monday because I am (yikes!) having gall bladder surgery then. I want to thank all my friends who've sent their best wishes. Needless to say, this blog will probably not be active until late next week.

Today, we go with quotes from singers Billy Joel and the late Jerry Garcia, who was the lead singer of the Grateful Dead (that quote will be on our sister blog "Politics, Culture and Other Wastes of Time.").

The reason for this quips has to do with celebrity chef and author Anthony Bourdain who expressed his disdain for both Joel and the Greatful Dead on the NPR music show "Sound Opinions" which airs here in NC on WUNC-FM (91.5/Chapel Hill). In fact, it is airing right now! (I should be listening, but I'm in a public library). Amazingly enough, Bourdain had dinner with Joel even though he is candid about not being hip to "Uptown Girl."

Here is the quote from the man who brought us "Just the Way You Are," "Piano Man" and "We Didn't Start the Fire:"

"There is nothing better than good sex. But, bad sex? A peanut butter and jelly sandwich is better than bad sex."
