10 Shirtless Photos of Billy Joel, Sort Of

Whenever I begin researching an article about an actor or musician, I try to find shirtless pictures of him for illustrations.  I check websites like Just Jared and Shirtless Male Celebs, and of course Google Images.

Right now I'm looking for pictures of singer/songwriter Billy Joel (1949-), so I put "Billy Joel" in quotation marks, added "shirtless," and specified that all the search terms must be present.  Here's what Google Images thinks is him:

1. Billy Ungar.  Where's the "Joel"?  At least he's a singer.

2. Billy Currington, a country-western singer who modeled in Playgirl.  He "likes it slow and long."

3. Former teen idol Joe Jonas.  Come on, it's "Joel," not "Joe."

4.  Joel Rush.  Actor/model, NOT a singer.

5. Zac Efron.  No Billy, no Joel, not a musician, although he starred in High School Musical.

More after the break.

6. Chris Colfer.  He starred in Glee, a show about high school singers.  Quite a stretch.

7. Josh Bowman, an actor best known for his starring role in Revenge.  I guess "Josh" sounds a little like "Joel."

8. Nick Goepper, an athlete who won a bronze medal at the 2014 Olympics for something called "men's slopestyle."  Nothing Billy Joel or musical about him.

I searched for "Nick Goepper shirtless," figuring I'd get pictures of Billy Joel, but instead I got pictures of Tom Daley, Gus Kenilworthy, Charlie White, Steve Langton, and someone named Edward.

9.  Matthew Lewis, who played Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter movies.  I guess Billy Joel is sort of magical.

10. A random twink.

But no pictures of the actual Billy Joel.  I'll have to use pictures of random twinks to illustrate my article.
