Ten years ago, a kid named Michael Pollack was tapped by Billy Joel at a master class for students to play the piano. Pollack’s video recital went viral.
So guess who wrote Miley Cyrus’s monster hit, “Flowers,” number 1 on every chart? Michael Pollack and his writing partner Gregory Aldae Hein! Billy knew it a decade ago. He saw the talent.
So guess who sent Pollack a congratulatory email this week? Billy Joel himself. I saw the email. Billy’s thrilled that he spotted a number 1 writer and couldn’t be happier.
Pollack and Hein’s songs will be all over Miley’s album coming next month. My spy says it’s a killer. Miley’s back, there’s six degrees to Billy Joel. What could be better?
