Los Angeles: Musician Billy Joel feels that popular singer Taylor Swift is this generation’s Beatles.
Joel compared Swift to the iconic band as he weighed in on both the ‘Shake If Off’ star and singer Adele.
Asked for his opinion on current artists, he told USA Today, “Adele is a phenomenal singer, kind of a (Barbra) Streisand throwback.”
He added, “Taylor (Swift) is also a very talented girl and she’s productive and keeps coming up with great concepts and songs and she’s huge. You have to give her high marks. She knows music and she knows how to write. She’s like that generation’s Beatles.”
