1968 Hockey Inductees
The 1968 Class is not exactly the most star studded group as it inducted one deserving (though not someone considered a superstar) player in Bill Cowley and two deserving administrators. Still, it is the smaller groups that we far prefer and the attention that Cowley received in 1968 had to feel good, as if he got in 1966 or before, he likely would have been ignored altogether.
Billy Joel may be among the most revered Rock singer and songwriters of all time. With a blend of classical, R&B, and Roots Rock, Joel has a very broad appeal and a huge amount of hits to his credit. Inducted in 1999. From Long Island, New York, U.S.A.
