That is sad. I used to love his Mr. Rogers parody on SNL.

I still listen to his “I love a rainy night” song. He’ll be missed.

Damn, that's ironic. Just yesterday, working out in the field in my truck listing to Sirius radio. heard 3 different EM songs on different stations in about 45 minutes and wondered in my head how he was doing.

It posted on the first try which was a miracle. Don't give a crap about anything outside the YouTube video. I think you need a shrink, dude.

"Shakin'" was the only song from him that I liked, and mainly because of the awesome lead guitar work.

Agreed, put out like 11 albums, maybe 4-6 massive hits in the 80's. Not like McCartney passed or anything. Anyone know if any of his songs hit #1?

Shit man, now I really feel old. I remember rocking to Two Tickets to Paradise on the jukebox at the Water Boggan game room, playing pinball and chasing girls as a teenager. :(

Thanks, I see his biggest hit (#4 was the one I posted). WTF- "Two Tickets" only hit #22. I find that hard to believe. My own research. Edit-22. Damn that's hard to believe.

BTW, if you're wondering why that lady looks familiar, it's Patricia Kotero, better known as Apollonia, the lead in Prince's "Purple Rain."

As you can see, while we are attempting to celebrate a lifetime of musical achievement, a certain "Anal- retentive" can't give it up. It's really pathetic.

Dude. I'm saying you are too young to even know who Eddie Money is. Stop it. You are looking more foolish by the day. I understand there may be some Lady Gaga/ Taylor Swift posts soon. More your speed.
