Billy Joel cancels his memoirs
Billy Joel has announced he is cancelling his planned memoirs.
The Book of Joel was scheduled for publication in June. The HarperCollins book was billed as an "emotional ride" that would detail the music legend's failed marriage to Christie Brinkley, as well as his battles with substance abuse.
But in a statement, Joel said he had changed his mind, adding that it took writing the book for him to realise he's "not interested in talking about the past".
The 61-year-old singer said the best expression of his life and its ups and downs is his music - and he's going to keep it that way.
HarperCollins confirmed that the deal had been cancelled.
