EDDIE MONEY RECALLS NEAR-DEATH O.D. EXPERIENCE

5/2/2013

Eddie Money revealed that his lowest point in his career actually inspired a few of his biggest hits. Money explained that prior to writing and recording his 1982 No Control album -- which featured such MTV classics as "Shakin'" and "Think I'm In Love" -- he nearly died: "The leanest period, was I guess, I wound up taking a bathtub barbiturate, which was horrible -- I thought it was blow, and I was drinking a lot and I would up having a really bad overdose on a drug called phenetole. A matter of fact, the guy's in jail right now for the rest of his life; he killed so many young people. And I couldn't walk for a year and I had my kidneys dialysis-ised -- it was a horrible part of my career. But then I came back and I wrote the No Control album, (laughs) which turned out to be double platinum. And the whole record is actually just about the overdose. The reason I wrote the No Control album was to talk. . . teach people, 'Hey, you don't have to be rich and famous to O.D. on somethin'."
