How did Billy Joel become so famous?
Billy Joel is mostly known as a famous musician and occasional actor. His second studio album, named “Streetlife Serenade” and its leading hit “The Entertainer” brought an actor numerous awards.
But life of celebrity is not a bed of roses; he struggled from the very childhood for his success and even tried to commit a suicide, when his career was at low ebb.
So, that’s how it happened.
Billy’s father used to be a talented musician. He left the family, when Billy was just 4 and the boy was mostly raised by his mother. The talent of Joel Sr. was inherited by his son and small Billy was spending long hours playing the piano. He started to earn money as a musician at the age of 14 to support his mom.
Billy Joel tried to meet his big break, becoming a member of numerous music bands. He struggled for many years, fell in depression and even drank a big gulp of furniture polish, but was saved by his band member.
Billy Joel met his big break, when finally was signed by Columbia records. His debut album “Piano Man” brought Billy Joel international recognition.
Being in his golden age, Billy Joel still participates in various concerts and appears in modern talk shows.
