One Ticket To Paradise; The Legendary Eddie Money Has Died (1949-2019)

The news has been circulating for the better part of an hour and with sources such as Variety and TMZ being the first to broadcast we must add our voice to the mix and announce to our readers that legendary Rock singer Eddie Money has passed away. The singer was 70 years of age and passed away due to esophageal cancer. The Money family statement is shared with you below:

“The Money Family regrets to announce that Eddie passed away peacefully early this morning. 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.”

Money was recently featured on the TMZ program where he discussed his being diagnosed with Stage 4 esophageal cancer and while he seemed optimistic about the illness I guess it was all smoke and mirrors for the public because here we are not too many weeks later and he has passed away. Money and his family were the stars of an AXS Network reality show called “Real Money”. Over the course of Money’s career he released “12” studio albums which spawned something like “25” singles. There were also a bevy of compilation packages and live releases on top of these. Over the years, I always enjoyed the music of Eddie Money and this was especially the case back in his heyday because you’d often hear his music on conventional Rock radio of the time. Stations like WNEW and WPLJ were never shy about playing his signature numbers like “Two Tickets To Paradise”, “Baby Hold On” and my very favorite song from his catalog “I Think I’m In Love”. I’ve added to clips of tracks I was most passionate about for you to remember better times. More about Eddie’s storied career can be learned via the Wiki entry that is at the close of this reflection.

Goodnight and thank you for the music Mr. Money. You were one of a kind and seemed like a fun, and cool person to know. May your passage to Valhalla be an easy one. On behalf of the Media Command HQ at PiercingMetal we wish your family, friends and worldwide fans the most sincere condolences. Rest In Peace.

To coin a phrase, “everyone is doing it” and why shouldn’t the legendary Rocker Eddie Money be any different. The series is called “Real Money” and will broadcast in the coming week or so.
