    He was the first Big rock concert I ever attended back in 1984. Great show.

    RIP Eddie

    Life on the road ? I envy you making people happy. He opened the Pine knob summer season, our local outdoor amphitheater, for years and years and years.

    Is that two tickets solo Jimmy Lyon? That’s one of my favorite FM rock solos. Almost sounds like its composed, nice pacing.

    When I think about that first record, I think about a guy I played college baseball with, Dino Mitrofanis... baby hold on and two tickets were always being played during warmups.... and Dino played that record all the time... we'd stand in the outfield during batting practice before games and talk about how great eddie money was... and how jimmy lyon sounded like paul kossoff and was awesome too... man, those were some innocent times... and good times.

    Not a real but definitely not a hater either. I heard about his cancer a while back. The only chance I had to hear him was when he opened for Santana (late ‘70s) in Dallas. We were late to the show and missed Eddie
    RIP

    This is a tough one. I just found out about his diagnosis about a month ago on XM. I saw him at a summerfest in CT in 79 I think. Music just poured out of the man in every way- his voice, his moves, everything. RIP, you rocker.

    I forgave him for shooting a man at the Mexican border.

    I saw him a few times at the Ventura theater in the early 1990's, he had a good band and put on a good show. RIP Eddie!

    I was listening to Caroline Morrow and it was about 9:30am when she broke the news of Eddie's passing.
    I think his work will be around for a long time because it expressed dreams that we all have, You know,
    "just like Ronnie sang"...I remember on days like this what George Harrison believed: that we're always here - maybe not in the physical, but we're here. He had a great vocal style.

    When I was a teenager living in the East Bay (San Francisco area) in the early '80s, Money was the only celebrity people would see around town (he lived in Lafayette; I lived in Pleasant Hill). I never encountered him, but I heard stories. He also championed the Antioch band Trak, which won the MTV Basement Tapes. I had a ROP class in video at Antioch High School, so I was acquainted with the guitarist. It's quite the cheeseball time capsule.
