(WIBW/AP) Eddie Money has died at age 70, according to multiple reports. The singer was known for such hits as “Two Tickets to Paradise” and “Take Me Home Tonight.”

In August, he announced he has stage 4 esophageal cancer. Money’s comments appear in a video released from his AXS TV reality series “Real Money.”

In the video, Money says he discovered he had cancer after what he thought was a routine checkup. The 70-year-old whose real name is Edward Mahoney learned that the disease had spread to his liver and lymph nodes.

Money said it hit him “really, really hard.”

He’s had numerous health problems recently including heart valve surgery earlier this year and pneumonia after the procedure, leading to his cancellation of a planned summer tour.
