William Martin Joel, better known to his audience as Billy Joel, was born on May 9, 1949. He grew up in Levittown, New York along with his sister and half brother. At first he was not much interested in music, however after his mother’s insistence, he finally took piano lessons. Apart from it, he also got enrolled in boxing class and could achieve initial level success in the game.
Being a smart student, he could do well at his school but in order to support his family, he also worked at a piano bar. Later it directly affected his overall performance and soon he dropped out of school to pursue a career in music. It was only after 25 years that he was finally awarded a diploma from the school.
Apart from music, he has a second passion for boats, so turning his passion into business , in 1996 he formed Long Island Boat Company.
