Is there anyone more synonymous with Long Island than Billy Joel? He rose to fame in the late ‘70s thanks to his albums “The Stranger” and “The Bridge.” His greatest hit is by far, Piano Man, which earned him his nickname.
Incredibly, the over-70-year-old Joel has toured as recently as 2019. He hasn’t made any new music since 1993, but that doesn’t stop fans from flocking to see the “Piano Man.” As for his relationship with Long Island? He still lives there but now travels into the city by helicopter instead of train or car.
