Eddie got about a half hour, and performed Two Tickets to Paradise, You've Really Got a Hold on Me (The Miracles cover), and Baby Hold On.

The site links to a popup video performance of each of the songs (a live performance sometimes, if they have one, or a studio version if not).

How could the Dead enjoy popularity, if their audience wasn't loaded?

Whacky...was watching axs tv recently and they've been doing a reality show with him/ his family.

Wonder if they will change that, given his death and the way they were focusing on his hoped recovery.

I was talking to a friend one day, and we both agreed if we had to choose a world without music but with psychoactive drugs, or with music and without drugs, we'd choose the world with music. YMMV.

The Dead scene has long included the Wharf Rats, a group of DeadHeads in recovery who stopped using drugs and alcohol.

Quote:
While the Wharf Rats originated at Grateful Dead concerts, they now have a presence at other jam band concerts as well. Similar groups named The Phellowship for Phish, The Gateway for Widespread Panic, The Jellyfish for The String Cheese Incident, Much Obliged for Umphrey's McGee, Happy Hour Heroes for moe., the Digital Buddhas for The Disco Biscuits, Better Than Before for The Werks and the Hummingbirds for Bassnectar all based on the Wharf Rats. But the Wharf Rats remain the best known of all of them.[2]

I saw Eddie Money at the Southern Star Amphitheater in Houston back in 1989 or 1990. I went with an old girlfriend. Good times.

Rest well Eddie.
