    Always loved that he got Ronnie Spectre for that one video.

    Take Me Home Tonight was great, and even better when they used it in MacGruber

    That was a charity act on his part. Ronnie had just escaped (literally) from Phil Specter and needed money desperately. Eddie did the song and video with her so that she could get back on her feet.

    damn I hope he didn't make Phil Spector jealous! :shock: I hear Phil is.....not very level headed to say the least. That said Ronnie was quite the sweetie-pie back in the day!
    Anyway I last saw Eddie Money on King Of Queens playing himself. I wasn't a huge fan, but he had his moments, not unlike Meat Loaf.

    the first time I saw him was around 1978 on SNL performing "Baby Hold On To Me" :yes:
    one time on John Boy & Billy radio show they did an Eddie Money song in their "misheard song lyrics" bit. John Boy sang "I've got....two chickens to paralyze! Won't you...pack a bag of leaves tonight!" :lol:
    my favorite Eddie Money song is as follows. Not a huge hit but I think you will like it:
