This ex-NYC cop burst onto the music scene in 1977 with his own brand of meat ’n’ potatoes rock that fit perfectly into FM radio formats of the day. It was rock impresario, Bill Graham, who signed the former Eddie Mahoney to his management company and secured him a record deal with Columbia Records resulting in a debut album that included this smash hit and its massive follow-up, “Two Tickets To Paradise.” Money soon fell into the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle and became addicted to drugs negatively impacting his career and landing him into rehab. Upon cleaning up his act in the mid-1980s, he scored again with the duet “Take Me Home Tonight” featuring ex-Ronette, Ronnie Spector on vocals. He has also appeared in several TV sitcoms and can now be seen hawking insurance for Geico.
