EP 086 – In Conversation With Billy Joel Archivist John Jackson

For over five decades, Billy Joel’s illustrious career has produced a wealth of media, capturing his journey as one of the 20th century’s most celebrated songwriters. 

Enter John Jackson, Billy’s full-time archivist, tasked with collecting and organizing artifacts that range from photos and newspaper clippings to studio outtakes and raw video footage.

Some items become part of booklets or box sets, or get released as new official concert recordings. But many others help Jackson – who developed a passion for this work as a teenager – to paint a comprehensive, detailed picture of the man and his music. 

Join us as we explore the Billy Joel vault with archivist John Jackson.
