    RIP to the Money man. Just heard the news this morning. He was pretty upbeat in his recent show episode on AXS TV that he would beat it. Cancer sucks.

    Two weeks ago or so it was revealed he had stage 4 cancer which wasn't surprising. Wasn't he a cop at one point?

    Yes. Two years as a NYC cop. His father was an officer but he put that on hold to pursue music career.

    That cancer is a sneaky one in that most of the times goes undetected/no symptoms until it's grown to an advanced stage.

    By the time you have issues swallowing food it's usually not in an early stage.

    Same cancer that got my uncle ray in 2012, it was stage IV by the time it was diagnosed. He had always had issues with heartburn, suspect years of stomach acids erosion of the esophagus was probably a contributing factor.

    RIP Eddie

    Yup years of stomach acid can cause it. It's pretty crazy how the standard procedure for heartburn for some is tums or self treatment of prilosec. Got to get that shit under control before you get Barrett's and possibly esophagus cancer.

    How'd your uncle fare? Edited my post as I didn't want to assume.

    He passed away a few months after diagnosis. My old man started to get Barrett’s before they got it under control. I have been ok for the most part regarding heartburn, used to take meds, but changed diet up... my little brother at 34 has had tons of issues. We’ve both gotta watch it though since there seems to be family history.

    I had two decades or more of bad heartburn thru my late 20's, 30's and 40's. Finally did something about it and have not had it in 15 years. No drugs either. People don't realize that when you have heartburn from acid coming back up your entire intestinal system is backed up. I had an endoscopy done last year and there were no issues with my esophagus thank god.

    I had acid burn of my lower esophageal sphincter back on 2016. I was an idiot that would eat a late meal and then go to bed like a half hour later. After an endoscopy/colonoscopy (other symptoms) they found the burnt sphincter.

    Definitely have changed my habits and only seem to encounter the normal heart burn occasionally.

    RIP Eddie Money. I did enjoy his work.

    Most of my heartburn issues back in the day were related to hot spicy foods and drinking. Still eat the hottest of foods now but just don't drink as much. Happy those days are over. It sucked feeling like you were having a heart attack often and it was only heartburn.

    I tried to get my wife to eat a piece of this cheese and she did. She told me I was out of my ****ing mind....lol... and never touched it again. I love hot stuff especially peppers. Jalapeno's are mild to me. Hot Cherry peppers are awesome.

    Anyway back to the man Eddie Money. Most remember him for Two tickets to Paradise and a few other hit songs but I always liked this video and song with the Lowriders.

    Yup, Shakin' is my favorite song of his. Talented guy with some good tunes. I asked my fellow millennial coworkers today if they knew who he was and they said no but they recognized the big 2 songs of his. Anyway, RIP Edward Joseph Mahoney, thanks for the songs that are still get regularly played in my household.

    ****in’ Bummer.

    Cool guy and killer tunes that were highly singable being sober or blitzed.

    RIP

    Saw him in concert about two years ago, he could still belt out the songs.

    A true artist and a gentleman, RIP

    How many heavy smokers have you known without throat issues raspy voice, excess phlegm, constant coughing, feeling of a lump in the throat (figuratively) etc..,? Of course it may not be something prompting a doctors visit but it always seems as if underlying issues are present. IMO it should never come as a surprise to these people since the chance is quite great, unfortunately.
