Legendary rocker Eddie Money has passed away. He was 70 years old.
His family confirmed his passing earlier this morning in a statement to Variety.
The statement reads: “The Money family regrets to announce that Eddie passed away peacefully early this morning. It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our loving husband and father.
“We cannot imagine our world without him. We are grateful that he will live on forever through his music.”
In August 2019, Money and his wife announced that he had been diagnosed with stage 4 esophageal cancer in a video clip for his AXS television series “Real Money.” Money also revealed that the cancer had spread to his liver, lymph nodes, and stomach.
“I thought I was going in to get a checkup, and he told me that, uh, I got cancer,” Money said in a clip from the show. His wife, Laurie, then explained: “It’s in his esophagus, the top of his stomach… it’s also spread to his liver.”
Money is well known for songs like “Baby Hold On,” “Two Tickets to Paradise,” “Think I’m in Love,” “Shakin’,” “Take Me Home Tonight,” “I Wanna Go Back,” “Walk on Water,” and “The Love in Your Eyes.”
