LAURA BRANIGAN - SPANISH EDDIE

Hello and welcome back.....From the Album "Hold Me", Spanish Eddie was the first single to grace our ears back in 1985. This was Laura Branigan's sixth top 40 hit in the music charts.
So the question remains... who was Spanish Eddie?
A quote from Songfacts.com say =   This song was rumored to be about Spanish Eddie Vincente of the YSA's Bronx gang crisis squad and his failed attempt to broker a city-wide gang truce beginning with the Hoe Avenue peace meeting in 1971.

Sadly Laura is no longer with us, She died in her sleep in August 2004 of a previously undiagnosed cerebral aneurysm. Her ashes were scattered over Long Island South.... She was only 47 years old.
