I propose that for this article, everyone who lost a family member on 9/11 and in the subsequent wars get to line up and kick Billy Joel in the balls.

When I drank, alcohol was almost entirely the cause of my depression.  I know that because it went away after I got sober, much to my delight.

/getting sober sucked, but it's all good now.  Light years better than it was as a miserable drunk.

the depression was compounded by a break-up he had went through at the time

I was a fan of Miller,even saw his live show. But he really did become a douchebag after 9/11.

9/11 seems to have made a lot of people-- especially older ones-- crazy.

Victoria Jackson
Billy Joel
Dennis Miller
Craig T. Nelson
Etc.

I still think of this whenever I think of Dennis Miller:

http://www.blacktable.com/chandler030529.htm

A Sample:

DENNIS MILLER (1988): That's all very interesting -- which is to say I wasn't listening at all -- but there's a larger issue here, kemosabe: namely, my career. What in the name of Ray Jay Johnson have you been doing for the past 15 years? I'm getting sympathy cards from the cast of  Diff'rent Strokes.

DENNIS MILLER (2003): Admittedly, mistakes were made. But I'm working on it. Did you see me last night on  Hardball?

DENNIS MILLER (1988): We'll get to that. Um, not to piss in the punch bowl here, but  Monday Night Football? What the fark were you thinking?

DENNIS MILLER (2003): It was a high-profile gig.

DENNIS MILLER (1988): What do you know about football? I seem to recall a certain touch football game at  Saturday Night Live where I asked Kevin Nealon to "hold my inhaler while I try to catch the oblong object." Football? I thought Joe Montana was a town where you couldn't get cable.

DENNIS MILLER (2003): It was a slight miscalculation.

DENNIS MILLER (1988): The Bay of Pigs was a slight miscalculation; this was a career-ending gaffe. Your weekly intellectual jousts with Dan Fouts and Leslie Vissar did not exactly remind us of the Algonquin roundtable. You alienated two huge portions of the public in one swoop -- sports people, and our hip fan base. Congratulations; you now have the cache of a low-level Tom Arnold, only without a show.

DENNIS MILLER (2003): You bastard.

DENNIS MILLER (1988): Which brings us to your weekly HBO show. I just realized that it has something in common with the great variety talk shows of the past, in that they are all now cancelled. Perhaps in retrospect getting career advice from Joe Piscopo was not wise.

DENNIS MILLER (2003): It's all under control, younger me. I've reinvented myself. Fifteen years from now, you'll be very proud of yourself.

DENNIS MILLER (1988): I have to tell you, and I say this with the greatest warmth and affection: f*ck you. (Flips through pages in folder).  The Factorwith Bill O'Reilly.  Hardball with Chris Matthews.Scarborough Country ... I'm not even sure what the fark that is, but suddenly I feel like a pack of Cools.

The better article is the one linked to by  notmtwain:

BIlly Joel on not working and not giving up drinking

BJ says in that article he has never had a DUI.

He...seems happy, I think.

Alphax: MisterMook: hardinparamedic: I propose that for this article, everyone who lost a family member on 9/11 and in the subsequent wars get to line up and kick Billy Joel in the balls.

Why? Because the rest of the world isn't allowed to have been depressed by 9/11?

What was done afterwards, in the name of 9/11, was far worse.


By Billy Joel? I'm pretty tired of a few of his songs too, but I don't really see him as an agent of foreign policy... I mean, he's no Dennis Rodman...

You banged Christie Brinkley when she was in her 20s. I on the other hand have to listen to your bullshiat jingles every time I'm at the grocery store so STFU.

itfa: Alcoholic claims alcohol is not the source of his alcohol problems.

I wonder which terrorist attack he'll blame for his liver cirrhosis?

/I kid Billy, he can be all the drunkard he wants to be
