Eddie Money has Passed Away

Written by

It’s a sad day for Rock n Roll.  Eddie Money passed away at the age of 70.  He died peacefully.  But he had been suffering from cancer of the esophagous, recently had heart valve surgery and a bout with pneumonia.  When Eddie was younger he wanted to be a New York cop…but he loved to sing so he rolled the dice and moved to California and started playing the clubs.  In a short amount of time he was signed to Columbia records and his career took off.  I knew Eddie personally.  He was one of the nicest guys in the business and really understood the power of radio.  Eddie would do anything for you.  He let me play the drums in his band, gave great interviews and if you wanted to emcee his show…never a problem.  He leaves his wife Laurie and their 5 kids.  But he leaves a much bigger family…the family of radio DJ’s and great listeners that span the globe.  Read more here:  https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/eddie-money-dead-obit-884000/
