Billy Joel- The Stranger 45th anniversary
Billy Joel is certainly not “The Stranger” to spectacular popularity, or the record books documenting same. And it’s not as if Billy Joel had not been a prolific recording singer/songwriter or an infrequent touring musician prior to his fifth album, “The Stranger”, in Fall 1977. But strangely his album sales were in a decidedly negative trend after “Piano Man”. “The Stranger” changed all that, permanently. Billy Joel joins me In the Studio on the album’s 45th anniversary.
