Billy Joel Allows 'Glee' to Use His Music but Refuses to Make Cameo

Unlike Britney Spears who makes a guest-starring appearance, Billy Joel rules out idea to appear in the TV show, insisting he's 'not a big TV actor type of guy.'
Billy Joel

has given the producers of TV hit "" permission to pick through his back catalogue for an upcoming episode of the show dedicated to the music of the Piano Man. The rocker reveals he has signed-off on a plan to turn his life's work into a "Glee" special - and he can't wait to see what director Ryan Murphy and his cast make of songs like "Uptown Girl" and "New York State of Mind".

He tells U.S. news show Access Hollywood, "I said, 'Yeah, go ahead, use my stuff.' I was in the chorus when I was in high school." But Joel insists he won't be following and making an appearance on the show: "I'm not a big TV actor type of guy. I'm a piano player."

"Glee" has already tackled Joel - show star and Emmy Award-winning special guest crooned a duet of the singer/songwriter's "Piano Man" in an episode last season.
