Billy Joel is said to be recovering after double hip-replacement surgery.

The singer's spokeswoman Claire Mercuri said Billy, behind such hits as Piano Man, Uptown Girl and New York State Of Mind, was "doing extremely well" after the operation.

She told People magazine the 61-year-old pop star had both hips replaced last week to correct a congenital condition.

Billy toured this year and was recently promoting the documentary film The Last Play At Shea. There was no word on when he planned to perform on stage again.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

You long to have some fun, but responsibilities require your attention. Set some reasonable goals and then reward yourself when you finish them in the allotted time. Having incentives will keep you focused and productive. Fortunately, a loved one is offering lots of support. Lean on this friend when you feel discouraged. With their encouragement, you'll be able to finish work in record time. After hours, you'll be able to share a good meal together. Do your best to balance work with play.More
