Eddie Money Recalls Being The 'Crown Jewel' of MTV
Although Eddie Money's live shows see far more action than his videos on MTV these days -- he fondly recalls being on the air back in the day -- seemingly around the clock. It was the release of 1982's No Control, which spawned the hits "Shakin'" and "Think I'm In Love," both of which became staples on MTV and favorites of the video generation.
Money told us that he's amazed at how economical the filming of the promo clips were back then: "Well, when I look back at those videos, I mean, everybody in those videos, we look -- the way they shot 'em and (laughs) everybody had the same haircut and skinny ties (laughs)! My videos, nobody else was putting videos out, so I was, like, the crown jewel of MTV. I don't know how much money they spend on videos these days, a million, two million dollars. . . We did two videos -- we did 'I Think I'm In Love' and 'Shakin'' for $88,000 -- for both of 'em. That was cheap."
