William Martin "Billy" Joel (born May 9, 1949) is an American singer, pianist, songwriter, and classical composer. He is the third-best-selling solo artist in the United States, with thirty-three top forty hits and six Grammy Awards to his name. As his 1973 breakout hit "Piano Man" implies, he is a quite skilled piano player, and many of his most famous songs have strong keyboard elements.
His discography has a wide range of styles include schmaltzy soft-rock love songs that perhaps reveal Too Much Information about his relationships (especially that with ex-wife Christie Brinkley), tributes to 1950s artists and stylings, attempts at working class rock comparable to Bruce Springsteen, jazzy ruminations on fame, religion, substance abuse (something he has experience in), or his hometown of New York City, bluesy piano numbers, and pure classical compositions.

! This was such a strong follow up to "An Innocent Man!" Billy put away those '50's style songs and picked up the guitar a jammed. My all time favorite Billy song "This is the Time" is on this LP Also with songs like "A Matter of Trust", "Modern Woman", Big Man on Mulberry Street", "Baby Grand" and So on.... This LP has 9 tracks that will show you just why Billy Joel is one of the best song writers in rock history.
