Interesting fact about this song. All of the lyrics in this song consists of events between 1949, the year Billy Joel was born, and 1989, the year the song was written.

That's correct. There's a big gap from 1963 upwards

The only name that I've heard of is Liberace. I have a feeling it's not the Los Vegas Liberace.

No it is. That line was references to the mid-1950s
