John reportedly had a falling out with Joel last year, after calling on the 'Piano Man' singer to address his own alleged alcoholism in a Rolling Stone interview.

"He was angry about that, he wrote me a [note that said], 'You shouldn't judge people. Who are you to judge?'" John explained during his appearance on Today.

"I said it because I thought it might get through. And I can understand him being angry about it and we haven't really communicated since."

Despite the falling out, the 65-year-old performer admitted that he would still like to rebuild the friendship.

John added: "Billy Joel is the kindest, sweetest man and the most talented songwriter and a great, great artist.

"If he called me tomorrow and said, 'Let's have lunch,' I'd go lie down in shock because I adore him. I only said it as tough love, but he was upset and I'm sorry I upset him."
