Billy Joel’s Memoir The Book of Joel Prevented from Being Published

June 26, 2011 | Posted by Chad Webb

It seems that Bill Joel’s memoir, The Book of Joel was mysteriously halted from going to the presses, and according to sources, his ex-wife Katie Lee is the reason why.

His book apparently shows her to be a spoiled person who lived the rock star life and was trying to get famous herself. When she got a copy of the manuscript, she was very upset, and stopped it from getting published.

Someone else who saw the book said Joel depicts her in a positive way and even includes passages in her own voice. Fred Schruers, who co-wrote the memoir with Joel, did not comment. His spokeswoman said she “had nothing to do with the book’s cancellation.”

Katie Lee also recently released a fiction book called Groundswell.
