Billy Joel Reveals About His Substance Abuse Problems in Memoirs


Billy Joel


Following Elton John's statement on Joel's heavy drinking problems weeks before, the upcoming memoirs will address about his failed marriages, his struggle with depression and his substance abuse.

Billy Joel will open up about his highly-publicized battle with booze in an upcoming autobiography, just weeks after Sir Elton John went public with his concerns for his pal's heavy drinking problems in a candid magazine interview. Elton risked the wrath of his on/off tour mate earlier this year when he revealed his frustrations over Joel's love of alcohol in a Rolling Stone article, in which he suggested concerts had been canceled because of the Piano Man's issues.

Joel brushed off the controversy as "Elton just being Elton" but the outburst appears to have prompted the American rocker to come clean about his drinking and his turbulent life in his memoirs. In "The Book of Joel", due for release on June 14, the rock legend will take fans on an "emotional ride" as he addresses his failed marriages, his struggle with depression and his substance abuse problems.

A statement from publishers at HarperCollins reads, "There is a lot in this book that he has never revealed before."
