Official Billy Joel Site
The official Billy Joel site has many interesting photos of Billy Joel organized into several galleries. It also includes a section of fan photos. There is also a special photo page on: Behind The Scenes: River of Dreams Photos.
Billy Joel Forever
This is a fantastic website of many rare photos of Billy Joel, both print and digital, that have been collected over the years by Jenni Jolly Nordaby. The layout and organization of this website are excellent. Many of the rare photos you see on Billy Joel fan pages on social media probably came from this site's precedessor sites (on Pinterest and other social media pages). Update: The website is apparently under re-construction. In the meantime, visit its Instagram page Billy Joel Forever for rare Billy Joel photos.
