I was just watching a commercial last night for the TV series they are about to drop about Eddie's battle with the illness. Looks like that's going to be scrapped now. R.I.P., legend of the '80's.

There was a commercial he was in a few years ago where he started singing "Two Tickets To Paradise" in a Geico commercial and to be honest, it was pretty sad to see. The wife and I were watching when it came on and both of us said he was past his "Use By" date. Little did we know, and maybe him too at that time, that he had esophageal cancer.

Yeah, he did have a string of hits back then and he was on the radio a lot. Besides "Two Tickets To Paradise" he also had "Baby Hold On", "Take Me Home Tonight", "I Wanna Go Back", "Walk On Water" and "The Love In Your Eyes" that all made the charts.

I had to google who he was Gumbo.

Must be an American thing.
He became a music legend here not just for his music but for his back story of something like being the son of a police officer who was the son of a police officer who was the son of a police officer and he also became a police officer. His destiny was to be a police officer like the rest of his family which he did become, but after a couple years he said fuck it I quit, I'm going to play music.

RIP

Man was a music icon, and will be missed

Thank you for the music Edward x

I was never a huge fan of Eddie Money to tell you the truth, I wasn't into that pop-rock style of '80's music but this one song did have some bad ass power chords.

Funny how back then before the internet you ended up knowing all the lyrics, melody and harmony of songs you really wouldn't have normally listened to just due to the fact that you were forced to hear whatever was playing on the radio at the time. I'm in NorCal and I vividly remember this one bad ass AM radio station from San Francisco, KFRC. "Doctor" Don Rose. :yep They used to play all genres back to back, one minute you'd hear Double-Dutch Bus, next song would be the Stones and Start Me Up, next song would be Michael Jackson's latest hit, next would be Rock the Casbah, next would be No One Like You, then Rick James, then would be Zapp, etc. Such a great station, shame when it all ended.

It's a great tune.
