Ric Ocasek & Eddie Money…


Date: September 15, 2019

01) Ric Ocasek, Lead Singer of The Cars, Dead in New York at 75

“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.”

02) Eddie Money, ‘Two Tickets to Paradise’ Singer, Dies at 70

“Eddie Money, the prolific singer and songwriter whose songs “Baby Hold On,” “Two Tickets to Paradise,” “Shakin’” and “Take Me Home Tonight” soundtracked popular music in the 1980s, died Friday (Sept. 13). He was 70.”

I know it’s kind of bad to combine memorial posts like this…but I just got this news dumped on me, about an hour ago…and I don’t really have a lot to write about it…

…This really, really sucks…

I had hopes The Cars might make more albums.

I’m thinking Eddie was done in that regard, though.
