Good for you, Elton! Somebody needed to say this to him.
In the new Rolling Stone which comes out on Friday, Elton John gets quite real with Billy Joel.
Here's what he says about Joel during an interview with the magazine:
"At the end of the day, he's coasting. I always say, 'Billy, can't you write another song?' It's either fear or laziness. It upsets me. Billy's a conundrum. We've had so many cancelled tours because of illnesses and various other things, alcoholism."
"He's going to hate me for this, but every time he goes to rehab they've been light. When I went to rehab, I had to clean the floors. He goes to rehab where they have TVs. I love you, Billy, and this is tough love. Billy, you have your demons and you're not going to get rid of them at rehab light. You've got to be serious. People adore you, they love you and respect you. You should be able to do something better than what you're doing now."
We couldn't agree more with everything you're saying, Elton!
It may be tough for Billy to hear, but it's all SO true.
Hopefully Joel will read this and give it some very serious thought.
