About Eddie Money
New York-born singer Eddie Money's rock career began in earnest in Berkeley, Calif. After signing with impresario Bill Graham's management company, his 1977 self-titled debut album contained the hits "Two Tickets to Paradise" and "Baby Hold On." The music was standard, vaguely R&B-tinged AOR, with big riffs set off by Money's blustery rasp of a voice. Money remains a somewhat unlikely star, with a manic pop-eyed look and strange side-of-the-mouth vocal delivery. Money charted on and off throughout the '80s, most notably with "Take Me Home Tonight" in 1986.
