    RadarOnline reports that Piano Man Billy Joel underwent double hip replacement surgery in Long Island last week. "He did them both at the same time," said Joel's ex-wife, Christie Brinkley. "Billy said, 'If I do it one at a time I know I'll never go in for the other.'" Joel is a man who knows his body and his mind with that statement!

    Joel had been suffering from a congenital hip ailment and plans to return to performing live now that his surgery is in the rear view.

    What is your favorite Billy Joel song? "Uptown Girl?" "Allentown?" "We Didn't Star the Fire?"
