The definitive biography of a pop giant!

From the groundbreaking "Piano Man" to "Just the Way You Are" to "Allentown" to "Uptown Girl" and dozens of other chart toppers, Billy Joel’s music has provided the soundtrack to millions of lives. His songs are etched in our memories, and his live shows are breaking sales records everywhere. His albums have sold more than 100 million copies, his singles have sold millions more, and 33 Joel songs have appeared on Billboard’s Top 40 charts since 1974. Here at last is the definitive biography of the brilliant and volatile artist Billy Joel. Interviews with Irwin Mazur, Joel’s first manager, Artie Ripp, Joel’s first producer, plus many others from every part of the musician’s life offer revealing glimpses of a man known for his outsize personal struggles as well as his phenomenal gifts. With dramatic new information on Joel’s legal battles and his substance abuse, plus his live concerts and Broadway show Movin’ Out, Billy Joel: The Life and Times of an Angry Young Man is an exciting, up-to-the-minute look at one of the great musical geniuses of our times.
