Billy Joel spoke candidly about his alcohol issues in a new interview with Parade.com. The "Piano Man," who performs his 100th career concert at New York's Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night (July 18th), shed light on why he quit writing songs and his battles with the bottle, revealing, "I couldn’t be as good as I wanted to be. It drove me crazy. The drinking was part of it. If I couldn’t be as good as I wanted to be, I’d just drown it with booze. . . I know I’ve got a reputation that I’m this depressed guy. I’m not -- I’m a happy guy. . . I was in rehab twice. The first time in rehab, in ’02, I wouldn’t even stay. I was only there for a couple of days. The press was all over the place. I said, 'I got to get out of here.' The second time was at (the) Betty Ford (Center in 2005), which was not a lot of fun. I was drinking too much. I said, 'This time I’m going to stick it through for a month.' It was one of the best things I ever did."
When pressed about any possible issues he might've had with drugs, Billy admitted: "I’ve tried everything; I’m a musician, come on. But I never had a problem with (drugs)."
Billy is now on his fourth marriage to Alexis Roderick, with two small daughters -- Della Rose and Remy Anne -- at home. Billy was asked if he thought his fame cost him his previous marriages: "I had to work. I was on the road. I was gone all the time. It’s not good for a relationship. I ended up doing what my dad did. He was never home. I wanted to be a home dad, which I am now. I have two little kids, and if I’m not working at the Garden or at a stadium, I’m home with them."
When pressed as to what he was most proud of, he said, "My ability to move on with life. I’ve had difficulties in my life, but it never stopped me from continuing. I’ve had divorces, it didn’t stop me marrying again. Troubles with business didn’t stop me from doing business. I have no bitterness about anything, even people who rip me off, I let it go. I’m content with that. I’m happy. I’m having a happy ending."
Joni Mitchell's historic 1970 performance at the five-day Isle Of Wight Festival will be released on Blu-ray and digital video on September 14th. Mitchell performed a dozen-song set during the festival's fourth day on August 29th, 1970. The legendary festival also featured such heavyweights as the Who, the Doors, Sly & The Family Stone, John Sebastian, Chicago, Procol Harum, Donovan, the Moody Blues, and Jethro Tull, among others.
According to the press release, "Joni Mitchell took to the stage to deliver an outstanding performance against all odds. At times, it was a battle against the audience, as they tore down barriers and shouted obscenities. Her set was interrupted multiple times, including one man invading the stage to try address the crowd. She later commented, 'It seemed like an appropriate time to flee' -- but still the seemingly fragile folk-rock singer stood her ground. Instead she returned to her piano, sitting on a fold-up wooden chair, and made an impassioned plea for respect from the audience, continuing her set with 'My Old Man,' she won over the crowd and the atmosphere softened. In response the front page of Melody Maker hailed her with the front-page headline, 'Joni triumphs!'"
The tracklisting to Both Sides Now: Live At The Isle Of Wight Festival 1970 is: "That Song About The Midway," "Chelsea Morning," "For Free," "Woodstock," "My Old Man," "California," "Big Yellow Taxi," "Both Sides Now," "Gallery,' 'Hunter," and "A Case Of You."
