The Great Wall of China (1993)


Tous les fanspots de The Great Wall of China

Taken from River of Dreams, Billy Joel's twelfth studio album, The Great Wall of China takes the form of an attack on Frank Weber, the musician's former manager and ex-brother-in-law. Frank Weber had been in charge of the star's finances for a long time before the star considered that the management in question had been sabotaged. The title refers to the fact that according to Billy Joel, he and Frank Weber could have reached the Great Wall of China if Frank Weber had simply believed in him. He chose the Chinese monument as a reference because he considered it to be one of the most inaccessible sites for Westerners and thus perfect for supporting his revengeful metaphor.
