Billy Joel Feels 'Pain And Anguish' Over Alexa Ray's Overdose

Billy Joel is recovering from double hip-replacement surgery.

Joel spokeswoman Claire Mercuri told People magazine Wednesday that the 61-year-old pop star had both hips replaced last week to correct a congenital condition.

She said Joel is "doing extremely well."

Joel toured this year and was recently promoting the documentary film "The Last Play at Shea." There's no word on when he plans to perform on stage again.
