Around 1977 before he got signed, I met him outside SF's Mabuhay Gardens in the entry line for a show, (some new all-girl band called The GoGos, also unsigned)
a friend of mine was Eddie's drummer for a couple years.
It's life for the taking ~ Rest In Peace Mr. Mahoney
we opened for him when he came thru Cleveland years ago. I had the opportunity to have dinner with him in the catering tent - we both ate chicken and we talked for about an hour - just shooting the sh1t, talking music, family, etc... he was such a sweet, caring guy - I have fond memories of that gig and of that dinner with Eddie. His tour bus had dollar signs for a front license plate and Eddie hauled all his merch underneath the bus...he actually schlepped all the boxes himself (I offered, but he said he wanted to do it himself). RIP Eddie, and thanks for the nice chat and allowing us to open for you.
