RIP The Cars frontman Ric Ocasek

75-year old Ric Ocasek, original lead-vocalist, rhythm-guitarist, and keyboardist for new-wave rock band The Cars, known for hits like "Just What I Needed", "Drive", "Good Times Roll", etc., has just passed away in NYC in his apartment, one year after he & The Cars were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Rock on in heaven Ric Ocasek.
Please don't shoot me Mr. Big Mike. I'm too young and good-looking to die, well too young. I got a father, I got a mother, I got a grandmother, I got a little sister...and a little brother this high (raises hand), and a little brother this high (lowers hand), and little brother this high (lowers hand), and a little brother this high (lowers hand), and a little brother this high (lowers hand) and then I got a great big brother this high (slaps gun and runs).

Drive has one of the best misheard lyrics ever

"Pork Pie"

Great song in it's own right too.
