This is why I always trust TMZ…they are always right!
When Eddie Money passed away last week – God rest his soul – we automatically thought his stage four esophageal cancer was the culprit. Later that night, I read a story on TMZ.com that cited a recent heart procedure as the reason he passed away!
I second guessed that TMZ report, but shame on me, I shouldn’t have. Maybe another news source got it right, but TMZ’s report was the first I saw.
A representative from Eddie Money’s camp confirmed to People magazine he indeed died from complications from a heart valve procedure he had in June.
In the end, I suppose it doesn’t really matter. The music world lost a talent who gave us all some unforgettable tunes.
We remembered The Money Man and his music with Music and Memories: Eddie Money hosted by Scott Childers which originally aired commercial-free on Sunday. You can listen to that here:
