Eddie Manion (geboren am 28. Februar 1952) wuchs in Lakewood, NJ auf und besuchte das "Berklee College of Music". In jungen Jahren spielte er Tenor- und Bariton Saxophon in diversen Rock and Roll Bands. Im Jahre 1976 bewarb er sich bei Southside Johnnys "Asbury Jukes" und wurde prompt engagiert. Ausserdem war er festes Mitglied der "Miami Horns", die Bruce Springsteen während der "Born in the USA Tour" und "Tunnel of Love Express Tour" begleiteten. Eddie "The Kingfish" Manion war zudem mit Bruce Springsteens "Seeger Sessions Band", Little Steven, Diana Ross, Bon Jovi, Willy DeVille, Dave Edmunds, Bob Dylan, Keith Richards, The Allman Brothers Band, Dion und Graham Parker auf Tour. 
Im Frühjahr 2012 wurde bekannt, dass Eddie Manion - gemeinsam mit Curt Ramm (Trompete), Clark Gayton (Posaune), Barry Danielian (Trompete) und Jake Clemons (Saxophon) - die E Street Band während der
"Wrecking Ball Tour" verstärken wird.

“This is a collection of songs I've recorded over the years. I started writing some of these songs in 1984. Well hey! I've been busy! After recording This Time It's For Real and Hearts of Stone in the late seventies as a member of Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, I learned many things from producer songwriter Little Steven but I also acquired his attention to detail and became spoiled with expensive state of the art studios. I also became sidetracked many times (thank God!) first with Bruce Springsteen's Tunnel of Love tour in 1988; a few European tours with Willie Deville; becoming a member of the Robert Cray band in 1993 and then back with the Jukes in 1996 for a few more albums and a million more shows. Sometimes you have to finish the things you start in life. Sometimes you gotta follow through!”  - Eddie Manion, 2004
