One of the big hits of the late 1990s was the catchy song “Save Tonight” [vid] by Eagle-Eye Cherry.
If you’re familiar with the song, you’ve probably also wondered about the name Eagle-Eye. Is it real? Is it a stage name?
Turns out it’s legit:
The moniker was given to him by his father, the late jazz trumpeter Don Cherry, just after baby Eagle-Eye was born. “I opened one eye and looked at him,” [Eagle-Eye] Cherry said.
He was born in Sweden in either in the late 1960s or the early 1970s (sources don’t agree) to an American father and a Swedish mother.
