Sad news from the music world-- Eddie Money has died. The singer and songwriter from the 1970s and 1980s, known for hits like Two Tickets To Paradise and Take Me Home Tonight, passed away this morning from complications from stage 4 esophageal cancer. He was 70.
Money was born in Brooklyn, New York and became a cop for a few years, before moving to California to pursue his passion of music. He rocked for over 40-years and sold nearly 30 million records.
In that time, he made a few stops on the Gulf Coast.... and looking on YouTube, I found a few videos.
Anyone remember seeing him at the 2012 National Shrimp Festival in Gulf Shores? Pensacola Interstate Fair in 2014? Golden Nugget Casino in Biloxi in 2014?
