Cause of death is 75.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 69942021


Age and years of the "rock n roll lifestyle" took their toll.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77746138



Life expectancy in 1945 was 64.

It's reported he was 70 and that he and his wife were estranged - I had no idea they were estranged:

The lead singer of The Cars has died at the age of 70 after being found 'unconscious and unresponsive' in his Manhattan townhouse.

Ric Ocasek was discovered by estranged wife Paulina Porizkova at around 4.14pm inside his Gramercy Park home in New York, Page Six reported.

I was in a band during the time they were really hot. We played quite a few of their songs, we were really good at them for some reason. Cars was not really my thing, I was a Hammond B3/Prog Rock guy, we played some Deep Purple, Heep, Floyd, Boston etc., even the Doors. But of that new agish genre, I liked the Cars. Like them even more now. Bye, Bye.... Rick, RIP.

Supermodel Paulina Porizkova married him. She had a crush on Spock, growing up.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 69942021


He broke her heart after 28 years of marriage for a younger woman. Now he’s dead. And she is still beautiful. Maybe he went senile before he died.

Funny, I was listening to a show Eddie Money did on Sirius radio today and he said when he was on some tour that his limo was the lead of a convoy with some celebrities and something happen but that Ric Ocasek tells the story differently about how Eddie stopped the limos because he saw a hot dog wagon and in turn held up the convoy.

Come's in 3's, that liberal ass Spingsteen is on deck.

I cant remember his name at the moment, but the guy who was the "leader" or the cars was that dude with the sweet feathered blonde hair cut. He sang on the 70s hits, then Ric sang on a lot of the 80s hits and because of MTV, everyone thought that the Cars was Rics band.

Anyway, RIP Ric. I was a fan and thought the Cars was your band.

Benjamin Orr (Had a MUCH better voice than Rick)
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76811228


Benjamin Orr died around 2000. In an interview, Ric Ocasek was asked how did they pick who would be lead singer for a song. Rick Ocasek replied, "Any of our songs that needed good lead vocals, Ben would sing it".

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.

 Quoting: CAstro hik


Saw them live....weird. Music was great. They never spoke. Turned out all the lights between songs. Like they were doing it because they had too. Odd as hell. Felt like they were being dicks, but with new wave types it was hard to tell....could have just been “artsy”...1985 I think...

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76984449


Every day, people get older. Boomers have enjoyed at least 55 years of life. Most of us were fortunate to live through the better decades of life in America. True American culture died after 16 years of George W Bush and Obamanation as POTUS. There is always hope, but the evil globalists are winning. All I can do is keep praying that the Lord returns soon to cast out all evil and usher in the age of love and peace.
