Liberty DeVitto — Billy Joel's legendary drummer between 1975 and 2005 — will publish his memoirs on July 14th. The book, titled, Liberty: Life, Billy, And The Pursuit Of Happiness, features a foreword by the “Piano Man” himself, ending years of bad blood between Billy and DeVitto.
According the book's announcement, among the topics covered in the autobiography are, “The making of each of Billy's albums is recounted in detail, with specific memories from the recording sessions of every song on every album from Turnstiles through Storm Front. Liberty then shares stories from the production and tour for River Of Dreams and the end of his tenure with Billy.”
