Bummer. RIP.

Former beat cop with the NYPD, and rock and roller Edward J. Mahoney, AKA Eddie Money, has died at 70, a week after the announcement that he had Stage IV esophageal cancer (for reference, Stage V is Forest Lawn).

A good guy, good tunes, and no whiff of stupidity or scandal marred his career. Guy just liked to rock.

70 years is always a pretty good run. Doubly so with a string of Top 40 hits.
But those cancer sticks will do what they do.
Here's hoping he's in paradise.

Had a great run from the late 70's thru the 80's. Liked his stuff. Good man, was married for about 30 years. RIP.

I think my absolute favorite of his is Take Me Home Tonight with Ronnie Spector.

Good music - never actually a beat cop though - dropped out of training before becoming an officer.
