Rock singer Eddie Money, famous for songs such as ‘Take Me Home Tonight’, ‘Two Tickets To Paradise’ and ‘Baby Hold On, ‘ passed away this morning of complications from stage 4 esophageal cancer.
His family released this statement:
‘The Money Family regrets to announce that Eddie passed away peacefully early this morning,’ his family said in a statement. ‘It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our loving husband and father. We cannot imagine our world without him. We are grateful that he will live on forever through his music.’
On a personal note, when I was still in college I used to go down to the Longbranch Saloon in Berekely to watch Eddie play and even at that young age he’d always tell me feverently “I’m going to be a rock n’ roll star, Evan!’ And he was.
We’ll miss you.
