Billy Joel has long taken an interest in educating younger generations of musicians. This runs from his acclaimed Evening of Questions and Answers and a Little Bit of Music series to today’s news that he has given a piano to the music department of Stony Brook University on his native Long Island.
Billy Joel will be joining hockey's Rangers and basketball's Knicks and Liberty as a permanent franchise resident of New York City's Madison Square Garden. The rock legend will perform one show a month at the famed venue for "as long as there is demand."
Billy Joel has struggled publicly with depression in recent years, but he says he's made it through his latest dark spell with a renewed faith in humanity. And his salvation came from a somewhat unlikely source.
It took Billy Joel more than half a decade and five albums to catch a break. 'Piano Man' was a Top 30 hit in 1974, but it didn't launch the singer-songwriter into any sort of career stratosphere. Then came 1977's 'The Stranger.'
