Billy Joel raves about Taylor Swift and her talent in a new interview with The USA Today.

Joel said of Swift when asked about her and her success, “(She’s) 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.”

Billy also commented on Adele who he says is “a phenomenal singer, kind of a Streisand throwback.”

As for the new generation of music fans, the music icon noted, “There are a lot of younger people now looking backward, and they like their parents’ music, which is a strange phenomenon.”
