Elliot Easton is on this forum?Oh, such shocking news... too soon to pass! I am just gobsmacked.
My heartfelt condolences to Ric's family, his bandmates [David, Greg, and Elliot who is a Forum brother], and the extended Cars family.
Ric's music especially with The Cars was not only formative, but very much opened an expansive view linking the rich traditions found in Rock N' Roll with new vistas of New Wave and post-modernism. Very much a fresh outlook and vibe, not only in the songwriting, but sonically and stylistically.
May he rest in peace, and his loved one's take comfort in the knowledge his work meant a lot to many.
