Billy Joel Gives ‘Glee’ A Hall Pass For His Music

Matthew Morrison and Neil Patrick Harris dueted to Billy Joel’s “Piano Man” on “Glee” last season, and Billy told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson that more of his illustrious catalog might make it to McKinley High.


“Have you ever seen ‘Glee’?” Shaun asked.

“Yeah,” Billy confirmed.

“Would you sign off on a ‘Glee’ episode of Billy Joel?” she continued.

“I already have,” Billy confirmed, breaking news about the hit FOX show.

A nonchalant Billy told Shaun that it’s not a question of if the McKinley High halls will echo in his “New York State of Mind,” but when.

“So, have they started the process?” Shaun asked.

“I have no idea. All I know is I said, ‘Yeah! Go ahead. Use my stuff,’” Billy revealed. “I was in a chorus when I was in high school, why not?”

The “Piano Man” performance on “Glee” garnered Neil an Emmy, but don’t expect Billy to Gleek out in person, like Britney does in the upcoming episode featuring her music.

“If they asked you to make a guest appearance on the show, would you?” Shaun asked.

“No,” Billy said definitively. “I’m just not a big TV actor type of guy, I’m a piano player.”
