Billy Joel is game for more 'Glee'

Posted on

Joel’s more of a behind-the-scenes kind of guy: “I’m just not a big TV actor type of guy. I’m a piano player,” he said.

Joel and Gleeks have already proven to be a winning combination — his signature song “Piano Man” was performed on the show last season by guest star Neil Patrick Harris, who earned an Emmy over the weekend for his work on the series.

So what Billy Joel songs are you most excited to hear on Glee, PopWatchers? I, for one, am pretty fired up for a little “We Didn’t Start the Fire.”
