wikipedia: Attila was a short-lived heavy-metal band featuring a young Billy Joel. After The Hassles disbanded in 1969, Joel and Hassles drummer Jon Small formed Attila, a keyboards/drums duo a la Lee Michaels. Joel was then playing a distorted Hammond B-3 and the forceful percussions help to create some strange sounds, very very far from Honesty! The record was a total flop but is now beginning to attract the attention of some collectors.The new band's instrumentation was organ and drums, with Joel also handling the bass lines with a keyboard, similar to the Doors' Ray Manzarek. Joel and Small's creative partnership ended in 1970 when Joel ran off with Small's wife, Elizabeth, although this did not end their collaborations, as Small produced Joel's Концерт video as well as the Live at Shea Stadium performance.
Their only album, Attila, was released on July 27, 1970. Attila has been selected by AllMusic critics as one of the worst rock albums of all time. Joel himself has gone on record as describing the album as "psychedelic bullshit".
Billy Joel, Interview with Billy Joel by Dan Neer in 198: "End of the sixties, I was in a two-man group. We were heavy metal, we were going to destroy the world with amplification, we had titles like 'Godzilla', 'March of the Huns', 'Brain Invasion'. A lot of people think just came out of the piano bar... I did a lot of heavy metal for a while. We had about a dozen gigs and nobody could stay in the room when we were playing. It was too loud. We drove people literally out of clubs. 'It was great, but we can't stay in the club".
