Billy Joel Scraps Planned Memoir

Jemal Countess/WireImage for Songwriter's Hall of Fame(NEW YORK) -- Fans looking forward to finding out all the details about Billy Joel's life will have to wait in vain -- he's canceled plans to publish his memoir.  The Book of Joel was due out in June from HarperCollins, but Joel has now decided to put the kibosh on the project.

In a statement provided to ABC News by his rep, the "Piano Man" said, "It took working on writing a book to make me realize that I'm not all that interested in talking about the past, and that the best expression of my life and its ups and downs has been, and remains, my music."
