Artist Biography Available in: Formed in 1982 in Santa Cruz, CA Eddie and the Tide dominated the San Francisco Bay Area club circuit during the mid 80's building a dedicated fan base along the way with their radio friendly AOR sound. Eddie and the Tide were a fixture on Bay Area rock radio (a rarity for an indie band) scoring many local hits including Running Wild, Running Free, One In A Million, Maybe I'll Get Lucky, Just Need A Little Rock and 'Till I Can't Run No More. Their video for Running Wild, Running Free won the MTV Basement Tapes and their LP I Do It For You won a Bammie for best independent release. With sold out shows and local radio support The Tide were always seemingly one step from breaking out as a national act. They eventually did sign a major label deal with Atco Records and released two LP's before being dropped by the label. They released two more indie records before eventually breaking up in 1990.
