Billy Joel undergoes surgery on bad hip
Rocker Billy Joel will be putting his feet up over the Thanksgiving holiday after undergoing double hip surgery in New York last weekend.
The "Piano Man" has been hobbling around with a cane due to a congenital hip ailment in recent weeks, and relied on the cane when he celebrated the grand opening of his motorcycle showroom, 20th Century Cycles, in Oyster Bay, Long Island earlier this month.
When he stopped by Howard Stern's studio to do an interview last week, he was noticeably weak, according to E!.
"He looked so frail, he was struggling to get around, to walk it looked like," a source who saw Joel on Nov. 16 tells the website. "He had crutches and was moving slowly, kind of dragging them on the ground and grunting. People with him were being very patient, and he was nice and seemed in a good mood, just moving pretty slow."
Joel recently admitted he was raring to get back on stage and start touring again after taking time off to rest his hip.

He said, "This is the longest time I've had off in I don't know how long -- and I had fun. But I'm ready to start playing again."
On Wednesday, Christie Brinkley told RadarOnline that her ex-husband was "coming through with flying colors," following the surgery.
