If there was an artist who defined the style, sound and image of 80’s music, it was Eddie Money. His smash hit from 1986, “Take Me Home Tonight,” could serve as the anthem for the generation. Money’s music videos set the precedent for all artists as his videos for “Shaking” and “Think I’m In Love” received strong rotation on the newly introduced MTV.
All together, the Money Man had 17 singles hit the Billboard Hot 100, including “Baby Hold On,” “Two Tickets to Paradise,” and “Walk On Water.” His album sales exceeds 25 million worldwide including platinum and multi-platinum certifications by the RIAA. Money always has two tickets to the Rock ‘N Roll party.
The Money Man is still touring and rockin’ fans across the country. Currently, he has joined forces with Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund and released a new single, “One More Solider Coming Home.” All proceeds from the single go to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.

Eddie Money is an artist all musicians should strive to model themselves after. He is a true performer who never disappoints.
