Billy Joel Out of Control

Published: 2004-04-28
New York piano man Billy Joel was recently involved in a car crash. The singer was driving in Long Island when he lost control of his 1967 Citroen and swerved off the road, eventually smashing into a house. Joel was not injured in the accident, and no other passengers were in the car with him when it happened. This is the artist's third car crash in only two years.

Billy Joel is a grammy award winning artist and calls himself a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Joel first debuted in 1971 with 'Cold Spring Harbor' (sporting a very fashionable afro and moustache on the cover), eventually going on to sell more than 100 million records worldwide. Some of Joel's best known tunes include 'Uptown Girl' and 'New York State Of Mind'. The singer was also married to supermodel Christie Brinkley at one point in time.

Not quite the force he used to be in the music world any longer, Joel had no qualms releasing his latest album 'Fantasies & Delusions', more than eight years after 1993's 'River of Dreams'. While recording and releasing new material may not be Joel's strong point anymore, he is finding new ways of carrying his legacy onwards. Broadway, in the form of 'Moving Out', is the new home of Billy Joel's talent. The musical tells the story of Vietnam veterans' experiences after they return home from war, with twenty-six of Joel's songs as the backdrop.
