Billy Joel Cancels Book Memoir

The Associated Press reports that Piano Man Billy Joel is canceling his planned memoir.
The Book of Joel was scheduled for publication in June. The HarperCollins book was billed as an "emotional ride" that would detail the music legend's failed marriage to Christie Brinkley, as well as his battles with substance abuse. But the singer changed his mind after he went through the process of writing the book. Apparently, drudging up the past made him realize he doesn't want to rehash it, even though he already did.
Joel, 61, says the best expressions of his life and its ups and downs is his music. HarperCollins confirmed the cancelation, too.
