Billy JoelBilly Joel may be pop royalty, but he's reportedly been lax about paying royalties to the people who helped him get to the top. According to Reuters, Liberty Devitto, who served as Joel's main drummer from 1975 to 2005, was never paid royalties for the 11 albums he recorded with the piano man.

Devitto, who played on some of Joel's most popular albums, including 'The Stranger' and '52nd Street,' filed a lawsuit against the singer in May 2009, alleging that royalty agreements made by Joel were never honored.
