Billy Joel toured Cleveland’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame on Thursday and appeared awed by the experience, AP reports. Joel will be enshrined there next year, along with Paul McCartney and others. The singer-composer became a major star in the 1970s and ’80s with such hits as “Just the Way You Are,” “Big Shot” and “Uptown Girl.” After the tour, Joel said, “To be in the same place as they are is a little overwhelming for me — people like Elvis, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Jackie Wilson and Wilson Pickett. That’s going to take a while to sink in.”
