Hello, Mr. Joel. My father once interviewed you for an article about your boat. I plan to attend your show in Portland next week, and would very much like the opportunity to meet you and shake your hand. You are my ALL TIME favorite musician, so it would be an honor. I know this is a long shot request, but I guess it never hurts to ask. Regardless, I know your show will be excellent. I went the last time you played Portland, too. Many thanks, Abbey.
