Imagine this, your daughter is in the hospital after reportedly trying to commit suicide. Would you a) rush to the hospital to be by her side or b) stay home? What did piano man Billy Joel opt to do?
He stayed home. A friend has stated that Joel didn’t go to visit his daughter Alexa Ray – who’s mom is model Christie Brinkly – since it would become a “circus atmosphere.” But it’s his daughter, so what if there were bells, whistles and a car full of clowns announcing his arrival, he should have gone to see her. But he has stated that he’s been in “constant contact” with the hospital. But a phone call is no replacement for the real thing.
