Billy Joel Cancels Planned Memoir

The Piano Man has cancelled the release of his memoirs.

Billy Joel’s autobiography, The Book of Joel, was scheduled for publication by HarperCollins this June. The book was going to cover his battles with substance abuse and his failed marriage to Christie Brinkley. However, Joel has decided that he no longer wants to release the book.

Joel, 61, says the best expression of his life and its ups and downs is his music. The publisher confirmed the cancellation.
