Eddie Money’s blue-collar style of rock and catchy sound has won him a loyal fan-base. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that he has recorded some of classic rock’s most memorable hits including "Two Tickets To Paradise", "Baby Hold On", "Take Me Home Tonight", "Shakin", and "Think I'm In Love" which reach across generations to build Money a faithful fanbase that continues to flock to his shows, and buy his records.
Eddie Money’s first dream was to follow his father’s footsteps into the Brooklyn police force, but his nights playing in a rock and roll band quickly changed that dream. He quit the academy and left for Berkeley, California where he played in Bay Area clubs. With his blue-collar style of rock and catchy sound, Money was quickly discovered by Bill Graham in the mid-70’s just as rock and roll was ready to provide him a loyal fan base.
Money has sold over 12 million records worldwide with 12 albums recorded. He celebrates 30 years as a recording artist and Money found great video successes as well, creating hilarious narrative-style videos for MTV audiences, which launched his career even farther.
