As readers know, Money's health had been getting in the way of his professional gigs. Back in July, Radar reported, the rocker, 70, canceled his summer tour after his developed pneumonia following a heart valve surgery. He had also nixed his plans to join Rick Springfield on tour due to "shortness of breath."

Prior to his death, Money made his return with a new album Brand New Day as well as the second season of his family based AXS reality show Real Money.
