Billy Joel appears to have well enough - and back in London - for the Linda McCartney memorial service.


Held at St. Martin-In-The-Fields, a small but very profile protestant church next to London's Trafalgar Square, the memorial service on June 8, 1998 was also attended by Elton and partner David Furnish.

Elton, who was heading to Germany to continue the Face To Face Tour, changed his plans to attend the memorial: "Linda was always very kind to me and was a special person. Out of respect to her family I want to be at the service," he said.
