Yet another famed musician jumped on the Glee bandwagon. Singer Billy Joel has given the producers of the show permission to pick through his back catalog 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 Access Hollywood, "I said, ';Yeah, go ahead, use my stuff.'

Billy can somewhat relate to the show as he was a choir kid himself, "I was in the chorus when I was in high school."

 But Joel insists he won't be following Britney Spears 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 Billy Joel. Show star Matthew Morrison and Emmy Award-winning special guest Neil Patrick Harris crooned a duet of the singer/songwriter's Piano Man in an episode last season.
