Ric Ocasek, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame singer whose popular new-wave band, The Cars, helped define the sound of rock music in the late 1970s and '80s, was found dead in his New York City apartment on Sunday, a police spokesman told Fox News. Ocasek was 75.

Another passing. I still have the original (and very much a classic) Cars first album. Their Greates hits I have on CD which still gets played frequently. (last weekend) RIP Ric. He is probably up there with Ben Orr playing the old tracks.

"If you’re a leader, you lead the way. Not just on the easy ones; you take the tough ones too…” – MAJ Richard D. Winters (1918-2011), E Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil... Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel." - Isaiah 5:20,24
One of my favorite bands when I was in high school. Loved the Cars. They had a new and different sound compared to the classic 70s bands. "New Wave" was cool. Same with the first couple of Police records and also Blondie.
