"Everything I do, I do it for you". Eddie Money says it at least once, every show. And he means it. This straight up rock and roll icon has been making music and delivering it to his fans since the mid 70's, and wouldn't have it any other way. With hits like "Two Tickets To Paradise," "Baby Hold On," "Walk On Water," "Think I'm In Love" and "Shakin," Eddie continues to be one of the hardest working men in rock and roll.
Eddie has recorded over a dozen albums of his own, and has done numerous projects in television and film. 2001's David Spade film "Joe Dirt" features Eddie Money as Joe Dirt's rock and roll idol. He has turned up as Mimi's ex-husband in an episode of "The Drew Carey Show". He's currently working on theme songs for Arena Football and Major League Baseball.
Having come from a long line of police officers, a very young Eddie joined the police force back home in Long Island, New York, and sang in his first band "Grapes Of Wrath". But California called and he moved out west to be a rock and roll star. It worked. "I just knew I wanted to sing and be in a band. California seemed like the place to be, so I was Berkeley-bound".
The early days of MTV and music videos launched Eddie Money into stardom. An accomplished musician, he sings, he writes, and plays the saxophone, harmonica and piano. "Of my five kids, I've got a few drummers, guitar players, and my daughter wants to sing and dance . . . when the guys get too old I've got myself another band!"
"Touring and writing is my life. It's who I am and what I do. And I don't see it changing any time in the near future,” Eddie says of his immediate future, "Hey, I get to get up every day and do what I love. Why change that!"
