Guitarist, saxophonist, keyboardist, harmonica player and of course singer-songwriter, Eddie Money was born Edward Jospeh Mahoney on March 21, 1949 in Brooklyn, New York.

Eddie was a cop in New York until his talent as a musician was too strong to be denied and he eventually quit the police department and got himself an unsteady job.

So to speak.

That job of course turned pretty steady after Eddie moved to Berkely, California to start his music career in the 70's.

Eddie's touring this spring and will make his way to the B.B. King Blues Club and Grill in New York and the Bergen Performing Arts Center this May.

Happy birthday, Eddie, and rock on!
