RIP One of the greats. Do wonder if the McDonalds' pic is from one of the original joints, i.e. in Green Bay or Muncie: https://www.msn.com/en-us/foodanddrink/foodnews/12-states-that-still-have-mcdonalds-original-golden-arch/ss-BB19oGFw#image=1

I looked up his ex wife, Valerie Bertinelli as well.

When she and Eddie divorced, they asked her what had happened. Why had she divorced Eddie? Sadly she spoke the truth. She left him because of his drug addiction and the fact that he refused to give up smoking and was already getting ill. I don't know about the smoking but he beat all the rest; his last few years were spent looking for the perfect cure to his cancers.

TBH I am amazed they did not blame covid for his passing. He had a good run and left some great tunes over the decades...
