Billy Joel Memoir Back On Again

Billy Joel's on-again, off-again plan for his memoir seems to be on again.

TheWrap.com reports that the Piano Man, impressed by the success Bruce Springsteen had with his authorized biography in 2012, has decided to go forward. Joel will work with ghost writer Fred Schruers on the book.

The original book was supposed to come out in 2011, but Billy pulled the plug on it. His problems with publisher Harper Collins -- which had given him a $3 million advance -- was a plan to market the book as a tale of "divorce, depression and drinking." He says that's not what the "essence" of his book should be.
