Billy Joel didn't receive his high school diploma when he was supposed to. The night before a big exam, Joel was playing at a piano bar and overslept the next morning. Joel wasn't angry about not graduating high school and is even rumored to have said, "I'm not going to Columbia University, I'm going to Columbia Records and you don't need a high school diploma over there." Years later, Joel actually did sign with Columbia Records and became one of the best selling musicians ever. His signature style of semi-remorseful, piano bar rock ballads have landed Joel as one of the more important musicians of his generation.

The nephew of founding member and drummer of The Allman Brothers Brothers, Derek Trucks was taught the guitar at a young age and by the time he was 9 years old he was considered a child prodigy. A few years after meeting Susan Tedeschi, an accomplished blues guitarist in her own right, the two decided to get married and start a band called the Tedeschi Trucks Band. The group was founded in 2010 and features a revolving cast of respected musicians, but Tedeschi and Trucks are always the two constant core members.
