    It’s hard to imagine him as being 75. I LOVE The Cars. I still remember the first time I heard “Just What I Needed” on the classic rock station in Aiken, South Carolina, driving in my old hand-me-down Buick in high school. The tune blew my mind; I’d never heard anything like it: the weird lyrics, the power pop synth, the syncopated guitar opening. Great stuff.
    RIP, Ric.

      One of my younger brothers was a huge fan. I liked their stuff but Magic was my favorite song (for some strange reason).
