Eddie Money has lost his battle with esophageal cancer. The 70-year-old singer, perhaps best known for his hit "Two Tickets to Paradise," died Friday at age 70, reports Variety. Other hits included "Baby Hold On" and "Take Me Home Tonight," a duet with Ronnie Spector. In all, Money released 11 albums in his long career, which took off during the heyday of MTV in the 1980s. However, he told Rolling Stone last year that he "missed the boat when it (came) to the big money." (Read more obituary stories.)
