I always assumed Ric was an awesome dude, looking as he did & landing Paulina Porizkova for the long haul.

There's 3 or so of their albums I still play on the regs

A more obscure track... RIP, Cool Fool

I am having a Mandela Moment...I could have sworn he died in the late 80's or early 90's???
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77102502


Nope.
Here he is last year at the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame induction.

Boomers are getting old.
 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.

yes.

I feel like the US is dying, the country I grew up in is dying and nothing can change it, regardless of 2020 election.

Always loved his music, he wasn’t an attention seeker like many other celebs constantly in the news trying to tell people how to live their lives.

Being married for 28 years is also kinda unheard of for any celebrity, Not sure if the split was his fault or not, but even if it was, that’s still a long time for someone like him with that kind of fame.

I see now that he’d been wearing a wig for some time, keeping up the rocker image.

Still, sorry for his family’s loss. I feel for his kids.

So true. So far the whole century has sucked and it's all the Bush-Clinton-Obama crime family. Evil fucks destroyed it all by starting the century with 911 and everything else has happened because of that. Why aren't they dead instead of Money and Ocasek.

He must have been 32 or 33 years old when they brought out their debut album. He was one year younger than Deborah Harry. They both were late bloomers when it came to their careers taking off.
