Billie Joel was born May 9, 1949 in the Bronx. He dropped out of high school to follow his music passion. I guess that was a good decision because he became one of the best selling artist of all times.
Billie is a genius musician song writer/lyricist. He wrote all of his own music and he never wrote with the inspiration of what would sell. He wrote from his heart but managed to have hit after hit with more than 150,00,000 albums sold. He is one of my favourite artists and have stood the test of time. In may of 2021 he will be 72 years young and is still performing but says he said everything he had to say so no longer rights.
To mention just a couple of Billie's hit:.
