They weren't even really rock, but they sound very rock compared to what I hear today. I miss some of these sounds.

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


She was my idol when I was wanting to be a model. Graced dozens of covers of glamour magazine...

She was by his side when The Cars were inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame last year.

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.

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.

I saw it being reported that he was 70 also. Wiki reports his birth year as 1944 - so that would make him 75.

That is so weird, there was a Cars cover band playing a show down a block from my house last night. First time in a long time I've heard the Cars...
They had a few good songs.
You know you're getting old when all of the musicians you grew up listening to start dying.

I believe, without checking, that they were all (or most) classically-trained musicians, and not just some non-sheet-reading garage band of random JDs.
