I bought this book because I knew the author. I am not a Billy Joel fan although I knew some of the music. I have to say it was one of the best reads I have had for a long time - I just couldn’t put the book down. It was fascinating to read , Jon’s style of writing is superb. I think all Billy Joel fans should read this brilliant book. Even if you are not a fan like me you will still have an excellentread.
Its a really enjoyable and easy read. I love the story line being from the perspective of a life long fan rather then a regular biography. There are fascinating interviews with some of Billy's current and past band members and native NYC 'Long Islanders' who knew and grew up, with Billy Joel over the last 40 years, frequenting many of his old haunts including the authentic 'Italian Restaurant" !!
