Pianist Billy Joel began as a middle-class Long Island NY gang member, working as a boxer and musician to make ends meet--until his 1973 album PIANO MAN shot him to the heights of fame. BILLY JOEL: THE LIFE & TIMES OF AN ANGRY YOUNG MAN follows musician Joel's big moments, his movement from pop to classical composition and on to Broadway, his sordid life, and more. Interviews blend with research to offer a full-faceted portrait of a complex young man's encounters with the changing music industry. An intriguing story of success and change evolves.
