Piano Man

Singer Billy Joel topped the charts in the 1970s and ’80s with hits like “Piano Man,” “Uptown Girl” and “We Didn’t Start the Fire.” Born on May 9, 1949, in New York, Billy Joel bounced back after a disappointing first album, Cold Spring Harbor (1971), with 1973’s Piano Man, featuring hits like “Piano Man” and “Captain Jack.” He went on to make successful albums like Streetlife Serenade (1974), The Stranger (1977) and 52nd Street (1978). In the 1980s, Joel married supermodel Christie Brinkley, and topped the musical charts with “Uptown Girl” and “We Didn’t Start the Fire.” By 1999, his worldwide song sales had topped $100 million, and he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Several years later, in 2013, he received the Kennedy Center Honors.
