Billy Joel is a lot of things; he’s a pianist, a singer-songwriter and a composer, just name just three.
He is most well known for topping the charts in the 1970s and 1980s with hits like ‘Piano Man’, ‘Uptown Girl’ and ‘We Didn't Start the Fire’.
In 2007, Joel released the single "All My Life," his first song with original lyrics in 13 years. Though semi-retired in terms of recording new pop songs, Joel has continued to tour the world.
A multiple Grammy Award winner, Joel has sold over 150 million records worldwide. Back in 1992, he was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and found himself in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1999. Even now, Joel continues to be awarded for his services to culture; he received the Kennedy Center Honours in 2013, which is America’s highest honour, for influencing American arts.
Throughout the years, Joel's songs have acted as personal and cultural touchstones for millions of people, mirroring his own goal of writing songs that "meant something during the time in which I lived... and transcended that time."
