Son of Rosalynd Nyman, born in England to an agnostic Jewish family, and Howard Joel, a Jewish Hollocaust survivor from Germany, whose family owned the fourth largest mail order company in Germany before dispossessed by the Nazis. After his divorce, Howard returned to Europe and married again. Billy's half-brother is the famous concert pianist Alexander Joel.

 

Family Records, the first label that Joel signed with back in the early 70's, had a lifetime clause in their contract with Joel. This clause came back to haunt Joel when he signed with major label Columbia Records a few years later. Up until the end of the 1980's, every Joel album sold by Columbia, 25 cents would be paid to Family as a royalty for each album sold. Also, Columbia had to put the Family name, logo, and copyright on every Joel album they produced.

CarriePookie - Billy would be attractive as the Piano Man. I thought he and Christie would last forever. Wonder if she ever wishes she had stayed. (1 year ago)
HollywoodUndercovers - He had the coolest house on the Jersey Shore here I grew up... (2 years ago)
JBella - He and my pal Evon would make a great couple. He needs to stick to "age appropriate" women who have his best interest at heart not their own. Great American treasure. (3 years ago)
jilljill - he still looks good after all these years (3 years ago)
seaottertail - For 33 years, when I get down, your music is still the only music that brings me out of the dumps and helps me feel level with life. It`s so earthy. I actually attribute you to helping to save my life. You are my Elvis. Thanks Billy. W (4 years ago)
B_Dawson - I`m younger than most fans of Billy Joel. I was born after he had already retired, but I`ve still managed to acquire a love for his music. (6 years ago)
