I was sorry to hear the news of the passing of Eddie Money. His story was a great one. He was destined to be a New York City Police Officer, like his brother, his father and his grandfather. After two years with the New York City Police Department, Eddie Mahoney, changed his name to Eddie Money and moved to California to pursue a career in music.
Eddie Money played at the 2016 Fair St. Louis in Forest Park. I was priviledged to bring him on stage. I said hello to him back stage and, somehow he remembered me from an interview we did more than 30 years prior.
Everyone has a favorite song by an artist or group. My favorite Eddie Money song was his cover of Smokey Robinson's "You Really Got a Hold on Me," from Eddie's debut album of 1977. The Beatles did a pretty good version of this song, but I like Eddie Money's version better.
Eddie Money was 70 years. Rest in Peace.
