    I was just thinking of Ric the day before he died. Thinking about how he was doing since his shock split from wife. Thinking about "Candy-O" and "Panorama." Shocking and sad news.

    RIP Ric. Thanks for everything Cars.

    Sad news. I was playing their first two albums in my car recently(in honor of Ric). I have heartbeat City somewhere too but can't find it. Like others I had no idea he was 75. RIP Ric.

    I had no idea he was 75.
    Wow that would have made him 34 when the first Cars album came out?
    I had no idea.
    Well he was a great songwriter and created very cool unique old meets new vibe that I really dug a lot when it happened.

    Wow, Ric was only two years younger than Paul McCartney.:uh:

    Ric was my hero. He certainly wasn't the best looking guy, yet he was married to one of the most beautiful women in the world for 30 years. :bow:
