MTV pioneer Eddie Money ‘shakes’ his way on over to Cache Creek
BROOKS, Calif. – "Everything I do, I do it for you". Eddie Money says it at least once every show –- and he means it. This straight up rock and roll icon has been making music and delivering it to his fans since the mid 70's and wouldn't have it any other way. With hits like "Two Tickets to Paradise," "Baby Hold On," "Walk On Water," "Think I'm In Love" and "Shakin," Money continues to be one of the hardest working men in rock and roll.
Performing a compact 150 or so shows every year, Eddie is always touring somewhere. On Nov. 1 he brings his tour to Cache Creek Casino Resort’s Club 88 at 8 p.m. to perform for his Northern California fan base. "My fans are the best, most loyal fans a guy could ask for. They keep coming back for more and I'm not gonna stop until they make me stop," says Money.
Having come from a long line of police officers, a very young Eddie joined the police force back home in Long Island, New York, and sang in his first band "Grapes Of Wrath." But California called and he moved out west to be a rock and roll star – and it worked. "I just knew I wanted to sing and be in a band. California seemed like the place to be, so I was Berkeley-bound".
A student of legendary vocal coach Judy Davis and prodigy of manager Bill Graham, Money began belting out hit after hit. The early days of MTV and music videos launched Eddie Money into stardom. An accomplished musician, he sings, writes, and plays the saxophone, harmonica and piano, and doesn’t show any sign of slowing down.
"Touring and writing is my life. It's who I am and what I do. And I don't see it changing any time in the near future,” Eddie says. "Hey, I get to get up every day and do what I love. Why change that?”
