RIP Eddie. God has truly taken you home tonight.
Rest in peace Mr. Money.
NO....I loved his "No Control" album when I a kid. Holy crap. Smoking takes another life.
Aw, man, I like Eddie Money. RIP, Eddie.
I went to the San Francisco Giants game last night, and the sound system played about a minute of "Take Me Home Tonight" between innings, and "Baby Hold On" also. (Apparently Money lived in the Bay Area much of his life.) Ian Crouch, The New Yorker:
Extolling the virtues of Money’s catalogue—with its bluesy electric guitars, roadhouse harmonica, gated reverb on the drums, synthesizers, and plenty of cheesy sax—makes one feel a bit like Patrick Bateman, in “American Psycho,” going on about the secret artistry of Phil Collins’s worst songs. But Money contributed a series of earworms that have, thanks to classic-rock radio, burrowed themselves into the American pop psyche.
Also, apparently Money didn't initially like "Take Me Home Tonight," which he has no writing credit on! Disillusionment! Ah well, life may be complex, but 80s gold hits will never die...
