UPTOWN GIRL singer Billy Joel has spoken of his battle with drink - but insists he is not an alcoholic.
The INNOCENT MAN says he checked himself into a rehabilitation clinic last year (02) to "cool out" after drinking too much.
He says, "I can abuse alcohol. If the demons get me, I'll go on a bender.
"It's happened to me before. That's why I went into rehab. I was on a binge. I said 'This is stupid. I gotta stop'. And I went and I did stop.
"If you drink too much, no matter who you are, whether you're an alcoholic or not, you're gonna do harm to yourself."20/05/2003 16:56
