Billy Joel's fiancee KATIE LEE had never heard one of the best-selling star's songs before meeting him.

Joel, 54, and 22-year-old Lee announced their engagement at the beginning of the year (04), and the leggy TV correspondent admit she knew very little of her lover's talents before they got together.

She says, "He's so sweet and so talented. He's great.

"I really didn't know about his music. One night, after we went out a couple of times, he gave me his catalogue to listen to - all 17 CDs."
