Billy Joel Before the Piano Man A look into Billy Joel's early recordings by Paul Maclauchlan (paule. William Joseph Martin (Billy) Joel, born May 9, 1949, in Levitown Long Island, New York. He began piano lessons at age 4. As a young teenager, Joel discovered the joys of reading books and decided to become a history teacher. Billy divided his time between music, street gangs and boxing. After 22 bouts he gave up the ring for piano when I came to a difficult passage I'd start knuckling the keyboards.
A triumph of technology and design, with respect for history in every detail, The Complete Albums Collection features 14 classic Billy Joel albums plus a bonus disc of rare and original recordings.
The Bridge (Billy Joel album). The Bridge is the tenth studio album by American singer-songwriter Billy Joel, released on July 9, 1986. It was the last studio album produced by Phil Ramone as well as the last to feature Joel's long-time bassist Doug Stegmeyer and rhythm guitarist Russell Javors.
An amazing album, and definitely his best album. Billy joel literally became famous with this album. From up-beat songs like "Worst comes to worst", and "Ain't no crime", to Billy Joel classics like "The Ballad Of Billy The Kid", "Captain Jack", and of course, his greatest song of all time, "Piano Man". Billy Joel wrote this album when he was down on his luck, and working at a piano bar. He changed his career with this album.
By 1971, Billy Joel had endured some rough years. The piano player had been part of a few failed bands – one of which ended, in part, because he stole the drummer’s wife, whom Joel would later wed. He was depressed, tried to commit suicide and checked into a psychiatric hospital. Once he got out of the hospital, and was feeling better, Joel decided to make another attempt at being a professional musician. After all, he was only in his early twenties. The album sessions, in which Joel was backed by a band and some symphonic orchestration, went smoothly.
Billy Joel spent the first 22 years of his career making pop albums, and the last 20 years performing that music all over the world. Stopping after 1993's River of Dreams means that he never had a true failure (even if Joel is unhappy with Cold Spring Harbor and The Bridge), and he never embarrassed himself with lame latter-day releases
