THE LORDS OF 52ND STREET
In 1975, after releasing two studio albums with minimal success, Billy Joel started looking for a new band with a New York sound for his next record, “Turnstiles.” He recruited fellow long islander and bass player Doug Stegmeyer, who then enlisted former bandmates Liberty Devitto and Russell Javors – two guys that Billy had known well from his Long Island Music scene. Richie Cannata soon joined the guys on the “Turnstiles,” where he recorded his famous solo on the track “New York State of Mind.” The Lords of 52nd Street are New York’s favorite band, have sold more than 150 million records, helped establish Billy Joel’s formidable sound, and continue to perform their legendary hits still to this day.
