I am, as I’ve said, merely competent. But in an age of incompetence, that makes me extraordinary. Billy Joel
William Martin “Billy” Joel (born May 9, 1949) is an American pianist, singer-songwriter, and composer. Since releasing his first hit song, “Piano Man,” in 1973, Joel has become the sixth best-selling recording artist and the third best-selling solo artist in the United States. His compilation album Greatest Hits Vol. 1 & 2 is the third best-selling album in the United States by discs shipped.
One of my favorite Billy Joel songs, and some history at the same time.
