Billy Joel Covers "You Shook Me All Night Long" With AC/DC's Brian Johnson

Billy Joel began his Madison Square Garden residency in January of this year. It's a residency without end. He'll be performing at MSG once a month until there's no longer demand for his services. Maybe he's looking to get his name in the rafter like Elton John who was his name next to New York Rangers' legends for the 64 shows he's played at the Garden, the most of any artist ever. 

For the March residency, Joel, who often covers AC/DC's "Highway to Hell," brought out AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson to do "You Shook Me All Night Long." It was the first time Joel has performed the song live and the first time Johnson and Joel have appeared on stage together in 12 years.

For Johnson's part, it was the first time he'd performed on stage since AC/DC's 2010 "Black Ice Tour." The band had recently announced that they'll be recording an album and touring this year for their 40th anniversary. So look out for that on your local classic rock station.

One last note here: Billy Joel recently made an appearance on The Tonight Show and did a duet with Jimmy Fallon, who seems unable to get out of fanboy mode no matter how many legends he gets to perform with. He's always so damn excited.
