Wikipedia : This day (May 9, 1949), in The Bronx, New York City, is born Billy Joel, American singer-songwriter and pianist

Official Site : Billy Joel has had 33 Top 40 hits and 23 Grammy nominations since signing his first solo recording contract in 1972. In 1990, he was presented with a Grammy Legend Award.

@allmusic : Although Billy Joel never was a critic’s favorite, the pianist emerged as one of the most popular singer/songwriters of the latter half of the ’70s. Joel’s music consistently demonstrates an affection for Beatlesque hooks and a flair for Tin Pan Alley and Broadway melodies.

@last.fm : As a teenager, Joel took up boxing so that he would be able to defend himself. He boxed successfully on the amateur Golden Gloves circuit for a short time, but abandoned the sport shortly after having his nose broken in a boxing match.

@Discogs : In 1971 Billy Joel started his solo career with the album Cold Spring Harbour and finally achieved fame in 1973 with his song Piano Man.
