LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Stars from the worlds of music and pop culture stopped on Friday to reflect on the news that rock star and hit maker Eddie Money had died.
Money died Friday at the age of 70 from cancer.
Reaction to his death ranged from mournful about his life to those who said they owed him an inspirational nod for his music style.
And, of course, there was a special memory from Ronnie Spector who sang famously on “Take me Home Tonight,” one of Money’s biggest hits.

#EddieMoney Such a sweetheart. Saw him in January at our benefit for the Malibu fires/Borderline shooting victims and hadn’t seen him in years. He gave me a big hug and immediately, while still hugging me, whispered a dirty joke in my ear. “So this guy’s wife…” RIP, pal. ❤️💔

Eddie Money was a great rock ‘n’ roll singer. Catskills funny and a cool cat persona. Irreverent and reverential about rock ‘n’ roll. One ticket to paradise. He will be missed. Much love to his family and friends. RIP pic.twitter.com/bfvybNagSD

Eddie Money once gave me the best advice I had in show business. I told him I was pretty sick to my stomach and looked me and said, “Go on anyway.” A true professional, true rockstar, and true friend. #RIPEddieMoney
