Joel told “Access Hollywood” yesterday that he isn’t angry at Elton John for claiming the Piano Man needed “tough love.” “I’ve worked with Elton for such a long time and I’ve enjoyed our relationship too much to let something as random as these comments change my affection for him,” Joel said. “Elton is just being Elton.” John slammed his former touring partner in an interview for the February 17th edition of Rolling Stone, saying Joel needs to do “something better with his life” and get serious about rehab. He also said that the pair had to cancel many tours because of Joel’s illnesses and “alcoholism.” Joel went to rehab in 2005 and 2002.
