Biography

A textbook example of East Coast blue-collar rock-n-roll during the 1970s and 1980s, singer Eddie Money mined chart gold from a string of high-energy anthems, including "Two Tickets to Paradise," "Shakin'," and "Take Me Home Tonight (Be My Baby). " On stage and in the recording studio, Money displayed an unbridled affection for the 1950s and '60s-era rock and R&B that provided a sonic backdrop for his childhood in New York by infusing it into his own material, which launched in 1977 with a pair of Top 30 hits in "Paradise" and "Baby Hold On." Money soon added a Top 20 single with "Think I'm In Love" to his roster of songs, but his career went into a tailspin for much of the early 1980s due in part to rampant drug issues. He recovered shortly before the release of his biggest chart hit, "Take Me Home Tonight," which featured girl group legend Ronnie Spector on emphatic backing vocals. This begat a second wave of Money's career, which capped in the early 1990s after several additional Top 10 hits, including "Walk on Water." Though his subsequent albums found few listeners outside of his loyal fan base, Money's songs remained a staple of classic rock radio, and his live performances remained a soulful sanctuary for Money's particular brand of party-hearty rock and soul.
