Eddie Money Has Died at the Age of 70

Eddie Money, perhaps best known for his hits "Take Me Home Tonight," "Baby Hold On" and "Two Tickets to Paradise," has died at the age of 70, according to TMZ.

Money died as a result of complications from stage 4 esophageal cancer.

In July, he was forced to cancel the remainder of his tour dates in 2019 with Rick Springfield after coming down with pneumonia in the hospital recovering from a minor heart valve procedure.

Eddie revealed his cancer diagnosis during season 2 of his reality TV show Real Money just last month. Unfortunately, by the time he learned he had cancer, it had already spread from his esophagus to other parts of his body.

Eddie Money was born Edward Joseph Mahoney in Brooklyn, New York. Many of his family members served for the NYPD and Money was himself on the police force for two years before deciding to chase his dream of becoming a rock star.

Money's self-titled debut went double platinum. Over his illustrious four-decade career, Money sold over 28 million records.
