    What a class act Billy Joel is. Joel has responded to Elton John's recent claim in Rolling Stone that Joel should seek tough love rehab for addictions. In a statement, The Piano Man said, "Elton is just being Elton," adding that he's worked with John for such a long time and enjoyed their relationship too much "to let something as random as these comments change [his] affection for him." Elton, who predicted Billy would "hate" him for the things he revealed, said that he had to scrap tours with Joel due to Joel's "alcoholism." What a bit of "key" drama here.

    What do you think of John's revelations and Joel's response to them?
