I saw Eddie Money live at the West Palm Beach arena, in 1981, he was the opening act for Foghat. I was there for Foghat, but Eddie Money put on a great show. This was the first live concert I ever attended, I wasn't the slightest bit disappointed with either group.
Eddie Money's death is something of a surprise. 70 is still not that old. I think a lot of these rock stars die young as a result of the drugs they take. It takes a toll on the body.
Money had a good run of hits across the early/mid 80's.
