’70s/’80s-era rock singer Eddie Money died Friday morning (9/13) from complications of stage 4 esophageal cancer. He was 70. Money revealed he had cancer a month ago on his AXS reality series, Real Money. His family gave a statement: “The Money Family regrets to announce that Eddie passed away peacefully early this morning. It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our loving husband and father. We cannot imagine our world without him. We are grateful that he will live on forever through his music.”

Money, who was a New York City police officer before moving to the West Coast in the ’60s, had a string of hits in the ’70s and ’80s, including “Baby Hold On,” “Two Tickets to Paradise,” “Maybe I’m a Fool,” “Think I’m in Love” and his duet with Ronnie Spector, “Take Me Home Tonight.”

Rest in peace, Eddie. Listen to some of his classics, below.
