    Billy Joel spoke to VH1 Radio while at a red carpet event and the Piano Man said that he is writing new music daily. But fans shouldn't get excited, since he won't be releasing any of it!

    He said, "I'm not interested in disseminating it. I'm writing for my own edification, really. I'm just trying to learn how to do it. I'm still learning."

    Joel's last album was 1993's River of Dreams so it's been nearly 20 years since he's issued a new album. He also said that he is fine with the music he is writing now being released posthumously. Not like he would have a real say over it, if lawyers or labels got involved, even if he stipulated such in his will.

    What is your favorite Billy Joel song? Do you wish he would release new music or are you fine with enjoying the classics?
