Jesse Money’s father, Eddie Money
Edward Joseph Mahoney was born on March 21, 1949 in Brooklyn City, New York, USA. He was the son of Daniel Patrick Mahoney, a police officer, and his wife Dorothy Elizabeth, a housewife. He spent his childhood in Levittown, New York on Long Island, and his teenage years in Woodhaven, Queens. Eddie started singing in the street when he was 11 years old, and as he entered his teens he started playing with the bands, but mostly getting dates with cheerleaders.
He was expelled from high school after being caught falsifying his report card, but he was eventually accepted to Island Trees High School in 1967.
Life before music
Before pursuing music as a professional career, Eddie tried to join the police force, following in the footsteps of his father, grandfather and brother. He joined as a New York City Department intern, but soon realized this wasn’t for him, as he didn’t see himself on the force with short hair for the next 20 years; he also had no luck with his bandmates, as they didn’t want a lawman in their band. Once his father was informed of his choice to leave the police force for music, he was not happy and ripped up the Jimmy Hendrix poster that Eddie had hanging in his room.
Eddie moved to Berkley, California in 1968, where he began training under vocal coach Judy Davis, changing his name to Eddie Money. During this time, he made a living selling bell-bottoms, then began performing as a solo act in San Francisco Bay Area nightclubs, and was noticed by Bill Graham, with whose help he signed a contract with Columbia Records. His debut, self-titled studio album became an instant success, achieving platinum status in the US. Established with the hit singles “Baby Hold On” and “Two Tickets to Paradise”, he successfully continued his career, releasing a total of 11 albums before his death, marking his place in the music industry with songs such as ” Think I’m in Love”, “Take Me Home Tonight”, “The Love in Your Eyes”, and “Peace in Our Time”.
Before his death, Eddie was working on the new album “Brand New Day”, which is scheduled for release on April 17, 2020.

Eddie had a turbulent life; he was in and out of rehab programs for his drinking problems, but said he was sober as of 2003. One of his heavy drinking bouts was in 1980, when he drank vodka but overdosed on a synthetic barbiturate, which he thought was cocaine. This led to sciatic nerve damage in his left leg, being unable to walk for several months, and then a limp on his left leg.
Eddie married Margo Lee Walker, a Los Angeles college student, on February 14, 1984; the two wanted the ceremony to be private, but fans noticed them and showed up for the wedding. The two divorced within a few years.
He was married to Laurie Harris from 1989 until his death and they had five children together. Eddie underwent heart valve surgery in July 2019, but developed pneumonia after the surgery. In August of the same year, it was announced that he had been diagnosed with stage 4 esophageal cancer and he died on September 13, 2019 at a Los Angeles hospital.
Eddie’s wealth was estimated at $20 million at the time of his death.
