Well, I think the point of all of this was that the musicians that we listened to while growing up, and for most of our lives, are all getting old and are nearing the end of their lives.

Eddie Money maybe a minor player, compared to someone like Keith Richards, but he still gets daily airplay. You’d have to look long and hard to find someone that’s not familiar with him.

OK, so name one song the little ******* is famous for.

I bet you can sing along to at least a couple of Eddie Money songs.

Eddy Money was my sister's patient. She ask me who's Eddy Money then told me why because there were a bunch of people trying to get his autograph. Sad. RIP

Eddie Mahoney....former NYC cop....who knew ? Seemed like a "good guy" but I got sick of hearing his songs played continously before I turned off the radio in the mid-80s...

I can name a bunch of bland or irritating songs from the last 5 decades.

Look, no disrespect to those that knew him or liked his music. I thought his songs were boring processed cheese songs that had a formula to make them easy to sing to and got a lot of radio play. Was he an excellent businessman? Yes. Was he a "Rock LEGEND"? Heck no.

p.s. I could only think of one song and hated the it for the click clack rhythm.. something with rainy nights in it.

That song you were thinking about wasn’t even an Eddie Money song. It was Eddie Rabbit.... Not a rock ‘n’ roll musician, more of a country musician. But hey, thanks for playing...

^^^ Yes. And Eddie Rabbit was great, but has been gone for 21 years now.

Ric Ocasek has just checked out. Front man for The Cars, in case you were wondering. No relation to either Eddie.

Many of us will look remarkably similar with time.

Ric, and Eddie. Bummer. Both will be missed by me. God speed to these legends. They'll be missed but will live on in their unmistakable sound.

Mutt Lange produced that song. Not sure how much work he did for the Cars, tho. He can mix some powerful stuff.

RIP Eddie and Ric.

One more to go if you are superstitious.

Had a smoking hot wife.

My brother bought me the first Cars album for Christmas when it came out. He made a cassette tape of it before I even listened to it. Good album, interesting cat.
