Billy Joel fans, get ready to Gleek out! The singer has given the greenlight to a "Glee" episode featuring all of his greatest hits.
"I said, 'Yeah, go ahead, use my stuff,'" Joel, a fan of the smash Fox series, told Access Hollywood. "I was in a chorus when I was in high school, why not?"
Joel's song "Piano Man" was already featured on "Glee" last season, and was performed by guest star Neil Patrick Harris in an episode that earned him an Emmy over the weekend.
While the New York native is excited about being honored by the gang at McKinley High, he has no plans to appear on the show a la Britney Spears, whose music catalog is also getting the "Glee" treatment.
"I'm just not a big TV actor type of guy," Joel, 61, explained. "I'm a piano player."
