Eddie Money was born Edward Joseph Mahoney in Brooklyn, New York. Although he dreamed of being a musician, after he finished high school, Eddie decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a police officer. In 1968, after serving as a New York City Police Officer for two years, Money (he changed his surname in 1976) put his law enforcement career on hold to pursue music. Fans immediately fell in love with his sound, and his 1977 debut album, which went double platinum, featured hits like Baby Hold On and Two Tickets to Paradise.  He followed the success of his debut album with a stream of Top 40 hits & videos. In 1986, Eddie released Can’t Hold Back which featured the classic, Grammy-Nominated duet with Ronnie Spector, Take Me Home Tonight. The album went platinum and also featured the hit I Wanna Go Back. Currently, he's released a new single (and video) One More Soldier Coming Home with the song's proceeds going to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund & is beginning a Jingle Bell Rock tour with Mickey Thomas (Starship) and Lou Gramm (the voice of Foreigner). He's also re-recorded Two Tickets To Paradise with Vince Gill adding his vocals. Eddie Money is heading to Nashville soon to do some more recording.
