Legend has died today 🙁
Rocker Eddie Money has died. He was 70 years old.
The musician’s family confirmed his passing earlier this morning in a statement to Variety.
“The Money family regrets to announce that Eddie passed away peacefully early this morning,” the statement reads.
“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.”
Earlier it was reported with a statement:
“I thought I was going in to get a checkup, and he told me that, uh, I got cancer,” Money said in a clip from the show.
Laurie then explained: “It’s in his esophagus, the top of his stomach… it’s also spread to his liver.”
“It hit me really, really hard,” Money continued.
“I don’t want to keep the fact that I have cancer from everybody. It’s not honest. I want to be honest with everybody.” He added that cancer treatment has come “a long way” and that “not everybody dies from cancer like they did in the ’50s and the ’60s. Am I going to live a long time? Who knows. It’s in God’s hands. But you know what? I’ll take every day I can get. Every day above ground is a good day.”
