About Billy Joel

Billy Joel was born in the Bronx and raised in Hicksville, New York. His father was a classical pianist, and Joel began piano lessons as a young child, urged by his mother's and his teachers' insistence. He continued piano into his teens, and began playing at a piano bar during high school to help his mother financially. Unfortunately, he ended up with so many absences at school that he did not have enough credits to graduate. Opting to pursue his music career instead of cramming during summer school, Joel left school for good, although he was eventually awarded his high school diploma 25 years later after submitting essays to the school board.

Inspired after watching The Beatles perform on the The Ed Sullivan Show, Joel decided to seriously pursue music as a profession and later joined a group called the Echoes, a British Invasion cover band. His career with the Echoes was short lived, as he was fired due to refusing to wear the required matching jackets. Later in 1967, Joel joined a Long Island group called the Hassles, who had been signed with United Artists Records. The group was ultimately a commercial failure, and disbanded a few years later.

In 1972 Joel released his first debut album called Cold Spring Harbor, but it too was a commercial flop, although his song "Captain Jack" had started to trickle into the radio airwaves on the East Coast, gaining underground popularity. Shortly after, Joel moved to the West Coast and began performing in piano bars under the moniker "Bill Martin," which eventually gave rise to the story behind his future hit, "Piano Man." While living in Los Angeles, Joel was offered a record contract with Columbia Records, and his hit single "Piano Man" was released in 1973. At the time, the album debuted to modest sales, but the signature song has since become a classic. Joel followed up with his sophomore album Streetlife Serenade, which is best known for producing the hit songs "The Entertainer," "Los Angelenos," and "Root Beer Rag."

Getting back to his roots, Joel left Los Angeles and returned to New York in 1976 to record his album Turnstiles withmusicians who eventually became the Billy Joel Band. The album's track "New York State of Mind" went on to become one of Joel's most beloved songs, and has been covered by a variety of artists. The album also produced the hits "Say Goodbye to Hollywood," "Summer, Highland Falls," and "Prelude/Angry Young Man."

Following the release of Turnstiles, Joel went on to create the massively successful album The Stranger. Released in 1977, the album became the best-selling album in Columbia Records' history. Joel thereafter embarked on a major tour of the United States and Europe, including a performance on Saturday Night Live. Three singles from the album dominated the charts for the next year: "Only the Good Die Young," "Movin' Out (Anthony's Song)," and "Just the Way You Are."

With the massive success of The Stranger, Joel's fans waited eagerly for his next studio album 52nd Street, which was released in 1978. The album shot to number one on the charts and sold over seven million copies at the time. Hits on the album included "Big Shot," "Honesty," and "My Life," which became the theme song for the television show Bosom Buddies. 52nd Street eventually won a Grammy award for Best Pop Vocal Performance and for Album of the Year.

During the next few decades, Billy Joel continued to release several successful albums, including Glass Houses, The Nylon Curtain, An Innocent Man, Storm Front, and River of Dreams.Throughout his legendary career, Joel has been awarded countless accolades, six Grammy awards, and he has sold over 150 million albums worldwide.


Billy Joel's Breakthrough Album

Billy Joel's breakthrough album The Stranger quickly propelled him to success after its release. The album was certified multi-platinum, and scored Joel a Grammy awards for Record of the Year and Song of the Year for "Just the Way You Are." Rolling Stone magazine later namedThe Stranger as the 70th greatest album of all time, but it was just the beginning of Billy Joel's mega-successful career.


Billy Joel Trivia
