NEW YORK, Nov. 24 (UPI) -- Billy Joel's publicist confirmed Wednesday the U.S. rock 'n' roll icon has undergone double hip replacement surgery.

People.com said the 61-year-old musician had the operation last week to correct a congenital ailment.

"Billy Joel is doing extremely well following bilateral hip replacement," Joel's spokeswoman Claire Mercuri told the Web site.

The report did not say when Joel is expected to take the stage again.
