One of the most popular and defining musicians of his generation, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Billy Joel has sold more than 100 million albums and consistently sells out arenas and stadiums around the world. From the song which first brought him wide notice, “Piano Man,” through such legendary hits as “Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song),” “New York State of Mind,” “Just the Way You Are,” and numerous others, in his upcoming memoir, THE BOOK OF JOEL: A Memoir (Harper; June 14, 2011, $27.99), written with Fred Schruers, Joel brings us along for the emotional ride, unveiling the life events that brought the original inspiration for his songs, then sharing insights into the process of writing and recording them.
