About Billy Joel

Billy Joel was born and raised on the East Coast, where he took to the piano at quite a young age with the encouragement of his father who was a classical pianist. Both his mother and his schoolteachers encouraged piano lessons as an extracurricular activity that continued well beyond his youth. During his teenage years, Billy Joel took a job working in a piano bar to help assist his mother with the financial responsibilities of raising a family. Working at a young age during his school years led to many school absences and subsequently affected his ability to graduate. He decided to focus on his music career instead of spending the summer in school to make up the credits that he needed to complete his schooling. What is fascinating about Billy Joel is that 25 years later, he submitted essays to the school board who granted him a high school diploma. Despite his impressive career, obtaining the diploma was a rite of passage that Billy Joel was able to experience. Like many musicians, The Ed Sullivan Show and his musical guests played a huge role in pursuing music. For Billy Joel, it was The Beatles who inspired him to join a band called the Echoes, which was a cover band of British Invasion. He was not in the band long, having left after refusing to wear matching jackets with his band mates. It was not too long after that Billy Joel joined a group called the Hassles. The band was already signed to the label United Artists Records. While not a commercial success, Billy Joel continued to mature as an artist even after the band dissolved. In 1972, Billy Jol decided to release his first solo debut album called, "Cold Spring Harbor." The album had one song called "Captain Jack" that found airplay on the radio stations throughout the East Coast. After a bit of success with the song, "Captain Jack," Billy Joel decided to pack his bags and move to the West Coast. He started to work in piano bars under the name "Bill Martin." These experiences at the piano bar was what inspired the hit, "Piano Man." It was during his time in Los Angeles that Billy Joel was offered a recording contract with Columbia Records. He followed the album with Streetlife Serenade, which included the songs "The Entertainer" and "Root Beer Rag." Billy Joel decided to leave Los Angeles and returned to New York to record Turnstiles. It was the song "New York State of Mind" that found mass appeal among diverse audiences. It has since been covered by a number of artists. The next album produced, The Stranger, was one of Columbia Records' top selling albums with the songs "Only the Good Die Young" and "Just the Way You Are." After The Stranger, Billy Joel toured both Europe and the United States. He even had an appearance on Saturday Night Live. Billy Joel continued to impress fans and make new ones with his next album 52nd Street. It quickly topped charts. One of the songs off the album, "My Life," became the theme song for the television show "Boston Buddies." The album 52nd Street won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Performance and Album of the Year. Billy Joel's success in the music industry did not end there, it just continued to grow decade after decade. It has afforded him the opportunity to tour all over the world multiple times and received numerous awards. Billy Joel is a musical artists that audiences continue to enjoy.

Billy Joel Breakthrough Album: The Stranger

The album that is considered Billy Joel's breakthrough is The Stranger. The Recording Industry Association of America certified the album as multi-platinum and the album won a Grammy Awards for the album and the hit song off of it, "Just the Way You Are." It is not surprising the Rolling Stone magazine named it the 70th greatest album of all time.

Billy Joel Trivia: Golden Gloves

In addition to playing piano at a young age, Billy Joel took up boxing in an effort to protect him from bullies who did not understand his penchant for music over sports. It led to 22 wins in the amateur circuit of Golden Gloves.

Fan Experience

A show spent listening to your favorite Billy Joel songs with the "Piano Man" playing the songs himself is certainly one that will be remembered for as many decades as Billy Joel as toured. At the same time, it is not one to miss no matter how many times you have seen Billy Joel play live.
