Billy Joel: Depression Over 9/11 Attacks Led Me to Multiple Car Crashes

Billy Joel drew plenty of withering headlines after a series of car accidents roughly a decade ago. Now, the Piano Man is blaming the car crashes not on his issues with alcohol but the lingering effects of 9/11.

"I was kind of in a mental fog, and it had nothing to do with the booze," he told The New York Times.

"My mind wasn't right. I wasn't focused. I went into a deep, deep depression after 9/11.

"9/11 just knocked the wind out of me, and I don't know even now if I've recovered from it. It really, really hurt that man could do that to man.
