Kevin James says it's pretty "surreal" being good friends with Billy Joel.
The TV sitcom star told Long Island, New York's Newsday, "This guy shaped my high school days. Each one of his songs is literally a distinct memory for me. To be able to hang out with him as a friend is weird because he’s a legend. But he’s such a great regular guy who is also very funny. I go to his shows at Madison Square Garden all the time and I never get tired of him."
James, who recently moved back to Long Island after living in California for nearly 20 years, is working on The Crew, a new NASCAR-themed sitcom for Netflix.
