    Great musician. Also just a good guy. Blue collar dude in the music business.

    “Take me home tonight
    I don't want to let you go till you see the light“

    You were taken home Eddie and were brought into the light. RIP

    Esophageal Cancer - That had to suck for him. Two Tickets to Paradise is one of my favorites. Me and my buddy hooked up with some girls in the restaurant we worked in back in 78 when I was a busboy. They were big time Eddie Money fans. We went back to their house for some after work activities. My girl kept singing that song. It was all good till she saw her dad's car coming up the driveway. We scrambled out a window and hauled ass. Never saw them again. I think about that night every time I hear that song. :(

    Cars were one of those groups I secretly liked.

    Them and Tom Petty.

    Just weird enough that it seemed like they were sneaking something past the mainstream.

    Cars bridged 70s rock into the 80s. RIP Rick Ocasek

    Cars were a supergroup that really took off in the 80s

    Ric and Eddie in the same weekend? Ugh

    RIP to both
