    Ric Ocasek, Lead Singer of The Cars, Dead in New York at 75

    Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Ric Ocasek, lead singer of the rock band The Cars, died Sunday in New York at age 75.

    Police said they received a call around 4 p.m. for an unconscious male at a townhouse on East 19th Street. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Law enforcement sources confirmed the deceased was Ocasek.

    Ocasek and his band were inducted into the Rock Hall in 2018. The institution described the band as "hook-savvy with the perfect combo of new wave and classic rock."

  • This one bums me out, I'm a huge Cars fan. One of the few bands to navigate the late 70's and early 80's and not fall victim to the 80's cheesy virus that infected other bands and artists who took it too far and just flat out sucked.

    IMO Orr and Ocasek were an amazing song writing and singing duo..........and most people don't even know that Ocasek produced as well, most notably Weezer's best album, the Blue Album.

    If there's a "soundtrack" to my life band, The Cars are it for me, and hell, let's give the man credit, he pulled this off.

  • Always like the Cars. They left their mark and were hit making machines. RIP Ric.
