Lead Singer Of “The Cars” Ric Ocasek Found Dead At The Age Of 70

Lead singer of the late 1970’s new wave band “The Cars“, Ric Ocasek, was found dead at 4 p.m. in Manhattan on Sunday September 15, 2019.

The artist was found unconscious and unresponsive on Sunday, lying in his bed in his Manhattan home. Emergency services then pronounced him dead at the scene, although there has been no cause of death declared yet. The NYPD have issued a statement saying that whatever the cause of death may be, there is no indication of foul play.

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame in 2018, “The Cars” were known for such classics as “My Best Friend’s Girl“, “Good Times Roll“, “You Might Think“, and “Shake It Up“.

Ocasek, who had written most of the songs, formed the band in the late 1979’s with his friend Benjamin Orr. Much older than most hit artists at the time, by about a decade, this didn’t stop “The Cars” from becoming a sensation sweeping the nation of America with their new wave music that combing the likes of the 60’s and 70’s into one.

It is comforting to know that, much like many other famous musicians, Ric Ocasek can still be heard and his feelings felt through his music, essentially living on past his death. A great song writer, singer, and guitarist, Ric Ocasek will be missed.
