Billy Joel‘s eldest daughter, Alexa Ray Joel, revealed her dad was over the moon with the response her latest track, “Seven Days,” has been getting by the press. The 35-year-old Alexa Ray — whose mom is Christie Brinkley — said the “Piano Man” could hardly contain his excitement, telling People – The TV Show!, “He called me right away. He’s pretty low-key, but he was like, ‘Honey, this is great!’ (And) I said, ‘Oh you kind of sound more like my mother. So enthusiastic!’”

She went on to add: “He doesn’t know how to text. He doesn’t understand social media. He loves to email. So recently I had a review in Billboard, and he sent it to me. He was like, ‘You got a great review in Billboard, honey!’”

A while back, Billy spoke about the musical connection he and Alexa Ray share: “I do sing songs with my daughter all the time. We just naturally harmonize. We’ll hear something on the TV or the radio — we start singin’ along. Or, I’ll play the piano — she’ll start singin’. She’ll play the piano — I’ll start singin’. We’re just, kind of, this singing father-daughter team. We always did that, ever since she was a baby.”

He went on to say: “Do we write together? No. She’s got enough of a hard time being the daughter of two famous people, already. She has to deal with a lot of resentment, and a lot of venom — and the Internet. I mean, it’s a terrible place out there, the Internet, what they say about people. And she has to deal with that. She’s got enough to deal with. People are already suspicious that I’m kicking open the doors for her, and I’m making everything cushy. She’s doing it the hard way. I’m not helping her in any way, except she crashes at my house all the time.”
