The music wunderkind from the Bronx
Joel was born in the Bronx in 1949 to parents with a Jewish background, his father having fled to the US from Germany to escape the Nazis. His father was also a classical pianist, putting the talent down to his sons. Billy Joel started playing the piano at an early age (and reluctantly, so, but now we’re glad he did). With his piano skills, he also helped his mother get money in and therefore missed school a lot – so this musician really knows about the darker sides of life, incredible when thinking how upbeat and happy many of his songs are. Today the world must be thankful that he didn’t succeed academically, as it led him to start his music career with Columbia Records. At the tender age of 16, he played with the Echoes, a band which focused on playing British Invasion covers, where he could live out his new-found love for bands like the Beatles. After the Echoes disbanded and a short-lived due band, Joel concentrated on his solo career and released his first album "Cold Spring Harbor" in 1971, but it was no big commercial success. Now, instead of giving up, Joel did what he always did – brush off the dirt and move on. In 1973, Piano Man was released which has become his anthem ever since and is usually played at the end of each concert. But of course, there are many more songs to sing along to, so seize the chance and grab your Billy Joel tickets now on StubHub! You already have tickets but cannot go anymore?
