As part of the occasional What I’m Reading series, here’s a recent book I’ve read and have enjoyed. Billy Joel is an American songwriter I’ve admired for as long as I can remember. A little while ago, I read a biography about the music legend.
I’m reading this book more for entertainment purposes, though I’m also learning a lot about Joel. He, in my opinion, is one of the greatest American songwriters of pop music ever. Somebody that musically I’ve really followed and been a fan of his music for as long as I can remember.
It’s interesting as you read about celebrities, and how often their lives are filled with ups and downs. Just like everyone, I suppose. He’s had many challenges, which is where a lot of his great music has come from, I think.
But he’s always had his love and passion for music, which has always rescued him when things were not going the best.
I wouldn’t necessarily pattern my life after that of Billy Joel, but I certainly love his music.
