It's been almost 20 years since BILLY JOEL's original band broke up, after lawsuits, (LIBERTY DeVITTO sued JOEL over royalties in 2009) and (the suicide of bassist DOUG STEGMEYER in 1995), have been together. But, for the first time since then, the band, LIBERTY DeVITTO (drums), RICHIE CANNATA (saxophone) and RUSSELL JAVORS (backing vocalist, guitarist) not pictured, will be on the same stage when they are inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame during a dinner at Long Island's Paramount Theater in Huntington, New York on October 23, 2014. Sadly, BILLY JOEL will not be able to attend, claiming through a spokesperson, that he will be out of the country that night. mmm, ???
L. DeVitto, D. Stegmeyer, B. Joel, R. Cannata
