The BiographyBook - 2007
Billy Joel ranks among rock'n'roll's most talented artists. He is also widely known for his professional struggles--his substance abuse problems, his marriage to Christie Brinkley, and a string of car accidents. This biography is the first in-depth portrait of this larger-than-life figure, the son of German Jews who fled the Nazi regime. It includes his childhood in the Bronx, his professional struggles, and his six Grammys, and features interviews with his bandmates and representatives from Columbia Records, an extensive examination of his diverse music tastes, and never-before-seen photographs.--From publisher description.
