Eddie Money is an American singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist.

He is the son of Dorothy Elizabeth (Keller) and Daniel P. Mahoney. He is married to Laurie, with whom he has five children.

Eddie’s maternal grandfather was Edward J. Keller. Edward was born in New York, to a German-born father and a Polish-born mother. Eddie has said (here and here) that his mother was of Jewish heritage, so it is likely that his grandfather Edward was Jewish.

Eddie’s maternal grandmother was Margaret A. Murphy (the daughter of Patrick Murphy and Anna J. Herbert). Margaret was born in New York.
