Sad news. RIP Ric - front man of a great band.

Songs like “just what I needed”, “my best friend’s girl”, “since you’re gone”, “good times roll”, “heartbeat city” and of course “drive” will stay with me forever.

The CARS were among the greats.
It always bums me out when a great artist passes.

R.I.P Ric Ocasek, and Eddie Money.
