We were sifting through the music guide trying to find plans to fill our Saturday night when we came across a listing for Eddie Money, playing at the RRazz room at Hotel Nikko in San Francisco.
Eddie Money? Acoustic show? Um, yes please. Eddie’s music carried me into my teens and when hits like Take Me Home Tonight, Baby Hold On To Me or Two Tickets To Paradise come on the radio, I still, to this day, belt them out at the top of my lungs. Man, I loved his voice. I was excited to go.
The show was good. He sang all the classics, and we all sang along with him, but you can see years of drug and alcohol abuse has taken their toll on Eddie. With that said, I was glad we got to see him live as it brought back a lot of great memories and made me revisit some of those songs I truly love buried deep in my iTunes library.
So keep rockin Eddie. Shake your money maker. And just like Ronnie sang…be my little babyyyyyyyyyy.
P.S. The RRazz room is a great little venue that sits about 100 people in total. You are up close and personal with the artist, reminding me of the venues VH1 used to use for their Storytellers series years ago. Perfect for an acoustic show.
