Biography

New York City, United States (1949 – present)

Eddie Money (born Edward Joseph Mahoney, March 2, 1949 in New York City, United States) is an American who found success in the 1970s and 1980s with a string of Top 40 hits and platinum albums. Rock impresario Bill Graham said of Money “Eddie Money has it all…Not only can he sing, write and play, but he is a natural performer.”

After becoming a police officer, like his father, during the late 1960s, Money began to be interested in music, and eventually ended his law enforcement career in favor of becoming a musician. He moved to Berkeley, California and became a regular at area clubs, where he eventually got enough attention to secure a recording contract with Columbia Records. Later in the 1970s, he charted with singles such as “Baby Hold On” and “Two Tickets to Paradise”. Money continued his successes and took advantage of the MTV music video scene in the early 1980s with his humorous narrative videos for “Shakin’” and “Think I’m in Love”, but his career began to fail him after several unsuccessful releases in the mid-1980s, accompanied by his struggles with drug addiction.

Money made a comeback two years later in 1986 and returned to the mainstream rock spotlight with the album Can’t Hold Back, which featured a Ronnie Spector duet with “Take Me Home Tonight”, which reached the Top 10, along with the hit “I Wanna Go Back”.

    I have seen Mr. Eddie Money a few + times live. I moved to San Diego California 20+ years ago and my friend and I were out looking to have some fun after the Chargers game. We drove up on an strip mall and went into a hole in the wall. Much to my surprise Mr. Eddie Money was there performing and he Rocked the House~! I love you Eddie!
