Unhappy The Cars Frontman Ric Ocasek (1944 - 2019)

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nbc...1.html%3famp=y


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."

The band had 13 top-40 singles, including radio staples like "Good Times Roll" and "Just What I Needed," and Ocasek went on to a successful producing career after The Cars broke up in the late 1980s.

He was also known for his long-running marriage to the Czech supermodel Paulina Porizkova. She announced their separation in 2018 after 28 years of marriage.

They listed the 19th Street residence for sale earlier this year for more than $15 million.

Wasn't The Cars song Just What I Needed the anthem/slogan of the no longer in business electronics store Circuit City? Because I used to hear that song during commercials when Circuit City would advertise sales and it seemed to help their new image. I didn't even know that Ric Ocasek died today because the news didn't mention it. I liked The Cars song Shake It Up because it's a fun song and the video for Shake It Up is also fun to watch with Ric playing an auto mechanic

More sad news, first Eddie Money and now Ric Ocasek. The Cars achieved their biggest success in the 1980's, peaking in 1984 with the Heartbeat City album, but my favorite Cars song is "Let's Go", #14 Billboard hit in 1979.

Unhappy Rock in peace, Ric Ocasek.

Another musical figure from my high school era in the late 70's/early 80's is gone. First Eddie Money, now Ric Ocasek.

Yeah, Circuit City did use The Cars' "Just What I Needed" for a while in their TV commercials.

It appears that Ric Ocasek died of the same illness that Lucille Ball and Alan Thicke had and also had a history of medical problems in the past. Why they didn't figure out that Ric Ocasek had medical problems before his death is a mystery to me and this death will probably go down in the list of celebrity medical mysteries

Rest in peace Ric. My dad met him once when he parked cars.
