R.i.p Eddie Money and Rick Ocasek from the Cars, died this week, a great loss to music.
Son of Butch said:Great loss?
Eddie Money age 70 charted in 1977 with Two Tickets To Paradise, 42 years ago.
1980 mistook synthetic barbiturate for cocaine, suffered nerve damage and a life long limp.
1982 received national attention with the rise of MTV videos.
1983 career decline with drug addiction.
1987 brief career comeback, Grammy nominated male vocals for Take Me Home Tonight.
1992 wrote the theme music to Quack Pack a Disney cartoon.
Last album was 15 years ago. Although there is a completed final album in the pipeline it's
been held in waiting, to be released until after his expected death from cancer to boost sales.
So should be released/promoted next week to sell while the iron is hot.
Actually I was a fan of both for close to 2 decades, but even that was 25 years ago.TennesseeTuxedo said:I was never a fan either Butch, but why not take a moment to post your lifetime achievements?
