From 1980 through 1988, Billy Joel's management published a newsletter/fanzine called "The Root Beer Rag." The editor and frequent contributor to The Root Beer Rag was Merry Aronson who did a great job. The RBR was a lifeline to fans seeking exclusive interviews and articles, photos, and fun facts about Billy, his band, and his crew. Below are photos of the cover of each issue.
