Eddie used to open the concert season every year for decades at DTE Energy ( formerly known as Pine Knob) an outdoor music venue in the Detroit area. From all accounts of the people he encountered and the on air personalities in Detroit he was a very down to earth and friendly guy, not to mention a talented song writer and musician. RIP Eddie!

He was at the Sharon last May, the same night The Village People was at the Savannah Center, which I went to. I would of gone to see Eddie but he wasn't advertised until 3 weeks before his show and tickets were $104 and the Village People had been in the newspaper for two months and the price was $35 and I had bought them right away. I think he must of had a last minute opening in his schedule and they slipped him in without much build up. He has a reality show with his family on AXS TV on every Sunday night right after the Sammy Hagar Road Show. They only announced he had stage 4 cancer a month ago. I remember checking tickets sales for the Sharon and it looked like he only sold about half the seats.

The Villages Florida

New York Post Sept 13, 2019

He wrote “Two Tickets to Paradise,” but he never wrote a traffic ticket.

On Friday night, the NYPD cleared up the mystery of whether rocker Eddie Money was ever a cop, as he’d sometimes claimed: He wasn’t.

But the rocker was, briefly, a trainee, a police spokeswoman said of Money, who died in Los Angeles on Friday at age 70.

“Eddie Money served in the capacity of a police trainee,” Sgt. Mary Frances O’Donnell told The Post. “He was never appointed to the rank of Police Officer. The NYPD offers their condolences to his family.”

Over the years, the rocker, who was born Edward Mahoney in Brooklyn, has sometimes claimed in interviews that his first career was as a cop with the NYPD back in the late ’60s or early ’70s — but he’d also claimed he was a training dropout.

His official website says he served two years as an NYPD officer before making it big in rock-n-roll.
