    Default too many bottles of red or bottles of white

    Billy Joel Checks Into Rehab Again
    Wednesday, March 16, 2005
    By Braden Keil and Rita Delfiner

    He apparently had too many bottles of red or bottles of white, and now Billy Joel (search) is back in rehab.

    The Piano Man, "following a recent bout of severe gastrointestinal distress," checked himself into an undisclosed facility "for treatment of alcohol abuse," his spokeswoman Claire Mercuri said yesterday.

    It's the second time in less than three years the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter turned to rehab to overcome his booze blues. On June 12, 2002, he escaped serious injury in a car crash in East Hampton.

    A cop said "there were no signs of alcohol," but days later Joel checked into Silver Hill (search), a chic Connecticut clinic.

    Seven months later, he totaled his Mercedes-Benz S600 when he smashed it into a tree while driving alone in Sag Harbor.

    Because cops said they could detect no smell of alcohol on him or in the car, they did not give him a Breathalyzer test.

    Joel's ex-wife, supermodel Christie Brinkley (search), took photos of the crushed car and said that their daughter, Alexa Ray, then 17, had been riding in it hours before the crash.

    I would be delighted if Edward went into rehab if he is drinking again - and I think we all know that he is. It feels like treason to be tough like that with Eddie, but I want him to have a happy, productive life & he appears to be self-destructing right now.

    Well said! Personally, I'm pretty sure that if Ed went into rehab, he'd be a much better person. That would be in all aspects of his life, such as: a better human being, a better man to his girl, a better father to his son, and a BETTER and MORE PRODUCTIVE musician! He sure would have a heck of a lot more albums to be released in the future if he becomes sober in this stage of his life.

    Most music virtuosos usually have some kind of substance dependency. Eddie has to cope with a lot of shit and is always under pressure to deliver the goods. Not to make excuses for Ed, but he is not the average, everyday musician. He is EDDIE VAN HALEN!!

    And here I thought that this was going to be a thread about two great musicians working on something really cool together. Oh well...
