In the late '80s I saw him on a double-bill at Melody Fair with Warren Zevon. Eddie came out with a whiskey bottle in his hand and was very unsteady on his feet, but still put on a hell of a show. Warren was amazing. Great night with two legends now gone.

 

RIP, Eddie.

Shooting that dude at the Mexican border was solid.

 

RIP, Eddie.

I have his self-titled record already sitting on the turntable, will play it as soon as I'm done with work.

 

RIP Eddie

Was doing a plug on a Sacramento station for a gig back in maybe 2012. The dj said he showed up late and was plastered  (at 9AM). Had him on for about 2 minutes.  Surprised he lasted  this long.

Eddie Money always looked like someone who was sober for maybe six minutes of his entire life.  I'm honestly surprised to find out he was still alive.

My lord, we’re a chippy bunch in the forums today.  Brutally honest, but chippy.

RIP Eddie.

Met him backstage at one of his gigs in the late 80's.  He put on a good show, and had some classic songs.

Yeah, but...I mean, my sympathies, requiescat in pace and all, but I've never seen him where he didn't look like he hadn't just drunk Eddie van Halen under the table.

 

And I figured he would have died of acute embarrassment after making that God-awful video for Take Me Home Tonight...but maybe that was just his career.

That was the charm.

His drinking and drug use was widely known here in the Bay Area. He'd show up to local shows plastered, often forgetting the lyrics. I guess luckily I caught him on a good day many years ago at a concert here in town. Another rocker from my childhood X'd out. On a side note, caught his TV show on AXS a few weeks back. He looked REAL bad, was surprised he was still performing in his condition.

RIP Eddie.  He would come to the local Casino (Mohegun Sun) and do free shows at "The Wolf Den" there.  Saw him several times and it always a good show.
