Long Overdue


After decades of entertaining the world with his music, Billy Joel will finally see his name on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The "Piano Man's" star is unveiled today in front of the Pantages Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard. Joel's Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, Movin' Out, recently opened there and will be playing through October 31.

A trained classical pianist from a very early age, Joel released his first album, Cold Spring Harbor, in 1972 and went on to create such favorites as "Allentown" and the renowned "Piano Man." He has also contributed to philanthropic causes through the years, like the Make A Wish Foundation and Save the Music.

--'Bout damn time!

You Said

I should say so! Especially considering the Olsen twins got their star before Joel.

I agree! About time they added him!

Says: Kelly at September 21, 2004 10:35 AM

I saw him and Elton john together in concert last year and he was Awesome! so energetic, and so fun to watch.

I thought that in order to be on the Walk of Fame that the space had to be bought? Like most of the time it's studios ro fanclubs that actually buy the star? I'm probably wrong, oh well.

I've heard the same thing Garybibb. This likely only took so long because no one thought to have it done or Joel didn't bother to pony up the ($1500, I think) for the star.

That having been said, Billy Joel ROCKS.

Yes the star is purchased by the person or a group representing the person. The Olsen twins whipped out the checkbook first, though they lack the talent compared to Billy Joel. I saw his show in Indy when Conseco Fieldhouse opened up. Fabulous!!!

The stars on the Walk of Fame are about worthless since they're basically sold now. Might has well have given him an Emmy. But I'm a big fan. Saw him in concert several times. Awesome.
