Money, who passed away this morning at 70 after battling cancer, according to the AP, is being remembered for his music and his personality.

Getty Musician Eddie Money performs on stage during the iHeart80s Party 2017 at SAP Center on January 28, 2017 in San Jose, California. "He was signed to Columbia Records and released 11 albums throughout his career, starting with his self-titled debut in 1977 which saw three songs chart, 'Baby Hold On, ' 'Two Tickets to Paradise" and 'You've Really Got a Hold on Me'. In 1980 at the height of his fame, the singer, who got sober in 2001 thanks to a 12-step program, almost fatally overdosed from a mixture of barbiturate and phenobarbital (which he had mistaken for cocaine) and alcohol, damaging his kidneys and the sciatic nerve in his left leg; he was unable to walk for almost a year as a result.

"What I don't want to do is I don't want to keep the fact that I have cancer from everybody", Money said in the clip from the show.

Money, who had prior only achieved top 40 status four times, went on to release six more top 40 Hot 100 hits following "Take Me Home Tonight".

The star got his wealth from his many hit songs from the 70s and 80s like "Walk on Water", "Baby Hold On" and "Take Me Home Tonight".

In 1987, the husky-voiced, blue collar performer received a best rock vocal Grammy nomination for "Take Me Home Tonight", which featured a cameo from Ronnie Spector.

Money dealt with an array of health struggles throughout his life. He also appeared on the CBS sitcom The King of Queens in a 2002 episode where Doug, played by Kevin James, wins a bet on a boxing match against his wife's wishes and must spend the money before she finds out.

Throughout the 1990s and 2000s, Money continued to tour and perform, and he was known for opening the summer concert season at Detroit's DTE Energy Music Theater for nearly 20 years.
