About Eddie Money
Eddie would spend
his younger year being brought up in New York City, in both Brooklyn and on Long Island. Coming from a family of NYPD officers,
Eddie Money would enter the trainee program but end his career early to pursue his dream of becoming a musician full time.
He would make a change for the and migrate towards the Best Coast, ending up in Berkeley, California. His early performing
years on the club circuit would make him the acquaintance of legendary promoter Bill Graham. Graham would manage and shape
Eddie's career in the early days, saying of Eddie that he had "it all… he can sing, write, and play, but he is a natural
performer". This was big praise from one of the most influential promoters of the era, and great news for Eddie Money. Eddie's
talent and relationship with Graham would land him his first recording deal with Columbia Records. His star would continue
to rise as he rode the MTV music video wave into fame, but disaster would strike in the early 1980s as he would face flagging
sales and a battle with addiction.
He would make a comeback in 1986 with comeback hit after comeback hit, including
the Grammy nominated duet "Take Me Home Tonight". By the early 2000s would completely kick his drug habit, and expand his
performance horizons into acting, including a brief stint on the popular sitcom The King of Queens and appearances as a musician
in a GEICO insurance commercial.
Eddie's first big hit would be his eponymous album which
debuted in 1977. Eddie Money would eventually go double platinum, and be carried by the legendary hits "Baby Hold On" and
"Two Tickets to Paradise". The success of his debut album would establish his signature, transcendental sound and immediately
establish a large and avid fanbase for Eddie. Eddie would catch the music video bug before anyone else, putting out videos
for his singles "Think I'm in Love" and "Shakin" which today are some of the most creative and memorable music videos of the
early music video era.
1986 would be another huge year for Eddie Money as he released Can't Hold Back, which would also
go platinum. The single "Take Me Home Tonight" would hit number #4 on the Billboard Hot charts, and the success of the other
single off the album "I Wanna Go Back" would cement Eddie Money as one of the pivotal rock musicians of the decade.
followups would include 1988's Nothing to Lose, another huge hit for Eddie that would feature his next top ten hit "Walk on
Water", which was a collaborative track worked on by both Eddie and Jimmy Lyon, a former band member. Over the years he would
continue to put out hit albums, that included both original tracks as well as covers of songs such as "Heaven in the Back
Seat" and a dedication song titled "Let It Go", in tribute to the hit "Jack and Diane".
Back, Eddie's eleventh studio album, is a nostalgic tribute album to the 1960s. Eddie's daughter Jesse Money performs alongside
her father on three tracks in the album.
In Eddie's GEICO commercial, he sings his hit "Two Tickets to Paradise" to
any family that wants to purchase vacation tickets.
Eddie would be invited to perform some of his greatest hits during
the halftime show at the Liberty Bowl in 2010.
2001 saw Eddie vanquish his addiction issue as he formally joined a 12
step program, and came to the realization that he did not need to abuse drugs to be himself.
