Detailed Description

Billy Joel (The Life and Times of an Angry Young Man Revised and Updated). Book. Softcover. 338 pages. Published by Backbeat Books (HL.333088).

ISBN 1617130052. 6x9 inches.

Billy Joel: The Life and Times of an Angry Young Man is a look at the superstar's entire career, including his troubled youth as a gang member; the controversy surrounding his first hit, “Captain Jack”; his legal problems; his storied marriage with Christie Brinkley; and his continued artistic frustration. “The Beatles did 'Michelle' and 'Yesterday,'” he has said. “They also did 'Revolution' and 'Helter Skelter' and they weren't pegged as balladeers. But because I had hit singles that were ballads, I became known as a balladeer. I've always resented it.”



Joel – one of the top ten touring takes of the decade – has continued his standing road date with Elton John on the never-ending Two Pianos tour. It was one of the world's top-grossing tours in 2009, just behind U2 and Bruce Springsteen.
