Eddie Money never stops working and since James Brown passed away he’s now considered the hardest working man in show business.
In the late 1960’s, the Long Island, NY native left the comforts of suburbia and headed to San Francisco to pursue his dreams of becoming a rock star.
In 1977, Money released his self-titled debut record and struck Double Platinum with hits such as: “Baby Hold On” and “Two Tickets To Paradise.” His follow-up album, Life For The Taking was released in 1978 and reached Platinum status again.
In 1982, The Money Man topped the charts numerous times with singles “Shakin,” “Think I’m In Love” and “Take A Little Bit.” With another Platinum record under his belt and the introduction of M-TV and the music video, Money’s over the top narrative videos made him a household name.
In 1986, Eddie Money’s duet with Ronnie Spector, “Take Me Home Tonight” reached number 4 on the Billboard Top 100.
With over 28 million records sold worldwide, Eddie Money’s trademark raspy husky voice is easily recognized today.
His most recent release, “Gimme Some Water” featured Vince Gill and was a top download in 2008.
In June 2009, Eddie Money’s musical autobiography, Two Tickets To Paradise- The Musical debuted in New York and received rave reviews. Money is currently working on taking his play to Broadway.
