Eddie Money provides a direct link from Smokey Robinson, Jackie Wilson and other great artists of the 60s to todays music. Among the bands that credit his influence are Foo Fighters and Hinder.
The man knows how to write a pop/rock song, and his vocals are outstanding. At 14 million records sold, his numbers are smaller than some, but if it is truly a "Rock n Roll" Hall of Fame, this guy should be in hands down.

Eddie Money is to New York to what The Boss is to New Jersey, John Mellencamp to the south and the Beach Boys to California. Everyone loves Eddie. You hear his music everywhere. He is a regular guy at heart and always makes time for his fans. Most of all he appreciates and respects his fans. His music is valuable, soothes the spirit and mind and takes us to a place that feels good. Hands down, should be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Ugh - no! I think the Ramones have that distinction.

I believe Eddie Money has displayed the key ingredients of becoming a member of the hall of fame for the following reasons:
1. He has touched both the young and old whom have become great fans of his music.

2. He has shown his true professionalism over the years by changing his style and scope to touch his loyal fans both young and old. He is a true performer whom electrifies an entire audience wherever he and his band play.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but those are not "key" ingredients for induction. Although he's had a good career, he's never really did anything earth shatteringand I really doubt that people will remember who he was in 100 years. He's like hundreds of other artists over the years...he's a fairly decent rock performer, but not what I would think would be worthy of consideration.

I'm a fan of Eddie Money. He hit it big when I was in high school and I love his soulful sound. I voted yes because I like him, but in reality, his "influence" on rock and roll is pretty low. He did have a number of top 40 hits, but that isn't the only measure for HOF entry. I hope he makes it one day, but I don't think he will.

There's no doubt this man should be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. He puts his heart and soul into every song and to this day has an amazing voice. Multiple top 40 hits like Trinidad, Baby Hold On To Me, Shakin, No Control, Think Im in love, Two Tickets To Paradise and Take Me Home Tonight. Eddie Money is Rock & Roll.

No he shouldn't be inducted. His hits weren't that good, and he was nothing earth shattering.

I'm with Eddie. Who needs the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame when you have Two Tickets To Paradise.

Posted by joker on Friday, 07.2.10 @ 14:25pm


Nah, he's a good performer but lacking in the I&I category and his lasting impact isn't very significant and I'm not sure how well some of his music has aged (this last nugget could be just me though)

All of those above things I mentioned kind of come back to haunt you when discussion to the Rock Hall comes up, doesn't it?

Right again Tahvo.

Just saw Eddie Money last night in Pompano Beach. I am immediately struck by the fact his songs are timeless. The songs stand up on their own because they are well crafted, appeal to emotions we can all relate to, have great musical hooks, and he delivers them in a lunch pail working man's fashion. If he has two tickets to paradise, one is deservedly destined to the R&R HoF.

Johnny Cash and Eddie Money

My wife and I just saw Eddie in Hampton Beach, NH on 5-29-15, which is the 5th time in four years! He still rocks, sings great, has a great band, and the crowds that come out are always satisfied! How can the 'Money-Man' not be in the RR-HOF? The songs are truly timeless and this with his talents truly sustain the 'test of time' that makes him worthy. Go Eddie!

Two Tickets To Paradise should also be an essential song.
