BILLY JOEL's wife Alexis Roderick, and BILLY JOEL himself, are both Taureans, or those born between May 1 and May 20. Alexis was born on May 6th, and BILLY JOEL on May 9th. Taurus personalities are said to be smart, ambitious and trustworthy. This might explain their compatibility in astrology.

                                                                                                         HAPPBIRTHDAyou two!

Every BILLY JOEL fan probably knows about his extensive motorcycle collection. In fact, he has so many motorcycles (70+) that he created '20th Century Cycles'. It's actually a storage warehouse to store his collection, but he has turned it into a motorcycle museum that is open to the public on weekends.



                                                                                But did you know about BILLY JOEL's car collection?

On 11/11/2022, BILLY JOEL performed to a SOLD OUT crowd at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. Me, being a BILLY JOEL fan for over 50+ years (I was raised on Long Island, N.Y. like Billy, and met him for the first time in 1977) I find it amazing that towards the end of his career, BILLY JOEL is now more popular then ever! So, for those who could not attend the show, a video of the full concert (2:01:58 min) provided by RONALD LIPPMAN, can be seen > here  (If you have the time, a must see concert!)

Back in the day CD's replaced cassette tapes, and cassette tapes replaced 8 track. But at the time, CD's were revolutionary. A clear, crisp way of listening to music. But with technology always advancing, CD's have become basically obsolete, and replaced by streaming and other platforms. So who released the first ever CD back in the day? 

October 1, 2022 marks the 40th anniversary (1982) of the release of the first albums on CD. So . . . which was the first CD ever released? There are a few albums vying for the title of ''first CD ever released'', and how you phase the question makes a difference. 

BILLY JOEL's '52nd Street'  tends to get listed as the first CD to be released commercially, but that's not entirely accurate, as it was just one of 50 CD albums released in Japan on October 1, 1982. But '52nd Street'  just so happens to be the first listed in the catalog, so it gets the 'tag' as the ''first CD album ever released''. So 50 'CD' albums first released in 1982, and BILLY JOEL's '52nd Street' is listed first? How did that happen? Let's just call it luck, by chance, fate, a fluke? But whatever the reason, I'm sure BILLY JOEL is not complaining about being listed number 1 in the catalog!
