Elton John: Billy Joel Alcoholic, Needs Rehab

| by

Elton John is playing hardball with his “friend,” Billy Joel.

Elton John and Billy Joel have performed together and have also cancelled many tour dates because of what John refers to as Joel’s “illnesses and alcoholism” according to an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine.

Elton said that Joel is going to hate him for this (you think?) but Billy Joel needs tough love. As someone who has been to rehab, Elton thinks Billy needs hardcore rehab – with patients cleaning floors, not watching television.

Joel has spent time in rehab in 2002 and 2005.

Do you think Joel will go to rehab? Will he appreciate Elton being a friend and suggesting rehab via an international magazine?
