Singer and songwriter Eddie Money received his 'Ticket To Paradise' today, Friday the 13th.

Eddie Money sang the tunes of the '80s and beyond. Many of us grew up with  “Baby Hold On,” “Two Tickets to Paradise,” “Shakin'” and “Take Me Home Tonight.” We're sad to report that Eddie Money has passed away at the age of 70.

A statement provided by his family reads:

“The Money Family regrets to announce that Eddie passed away peacefully early this morning. It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our loving husband and father. We cannot imagine our world without him. We are grateful that he will live on forever through his music.”

Eddie Money was recently diagnosed with stage 4 esophageal cancer.

Money is survived by his wife Laurie and five children.
