Billy Joel is celebrating his 71st birthday today. As a number of online tributes attest, he is one of the most acclaimed singers of his generation.
Popular singer-songwriter-pianist Billy Joel (Honesty, Just the Way You Are, Piano Man, ...) has always liked to keep a bit of himself hidden from view. At 71st birthday, he remains a man of many facets.
Joel, a cultural icon
Born William Martin Joel in New York on May 9, 1949, his career spans an arc over many different eras and tastes in American history. Joel's not just a great singer, he's an inspiration, an icon and a successful business man. At this point in his career, there seems to be little Billy hasn't done.
And we've got a feeling the next 12 months are going to be even bigger and better for Billy Joel as he promises more to come. After all, he's only 71.
