In an interview with Rolling Stone, singer Elton John says Billy Joel needs to get serious about rehab and "do something better" with his life. Whoa. Where the hell did that come from?
John said that he and Joel cancelled many tours because of Joel's illnesses and "alcoholism." In the February 17th issue of the mag, John also says Joel should do rehab like he did it — with patients cleaning floors, not watching television.
John acknowledged that Joel will not be happy about his comments. Joel has been in treatment for alcohol abuse twice; once in 2022 and once in 2005.
