Eddie Money, ‘Two Tickets to Paradise’ singer, dead at 70: report

Money, who passed away this morning at 70 after battling cancer, according to the AP, is being remembered for his music and his personality.

Money announced in August that he had esophageal cancer during the taping of an episode of his reality TV series "Real Money". We can not imagine our world without him.

Cindy Ronzoni provided a statement from the family, saying Money died peacefully in Los Angeles.

After Money convinced Spector to feature on the track, "Take Me Home Tonight" breathed new life into both their careers, soaring to the top of the September 20, 1986, Mainstream Rock Songs chart. He added that cancer treatment has come "a long way" and that "not everybody dies from cancer like they did in the '50s and the '60s".

At the same as his cancer reveal, the rocker also shared he was recovering from complications from an unrelated heart valve procedure earlier this summer.

A New York City native born Edward Joseph Mahoney, Money grew up in a family of police officers and was training in law enforcement himself before he rebelled and decided he'd rather be a singer. In 1987, he received a best rock vocal Grammy nomination for Take Me Home Tonight. Who knows. It's in God's hands.

In a recent interview with MLive before one of his DTE concerts, Money told us, using some choice words we can't repeat, that he really hates performing "Walk On Water".

Money scored his first hit in the late 1970s with "Baby Hold On".

Money, who had prior only achieved top 40 status four times, went on to release six more top 40 Hot 100 hits following "Take Me Home Tonight". It included the now classic hit, "Two Tickets to Paradise". I sold 42 million records.

A music career wasn't his initial career path.

He's survived by his wife of more than 30 years, Laurie, and 5 children.
