    This is no kidding... I was listening to Moving in Stereo when the notification popped up on my phone. I thought it must be an odd spooky internet snooping, but it appears to be real.

    I'm watching the Eagles-Falcons game. They started playing the Cars' "Lets Go" as they went into a commercial break. Pretty cool.

    I've seen it, too. One source lists his age at 75, and another at 70.

    Really sorry to hear this news.:(

    Played a lot of Cars tunes back in the 80's.

    RIP Ric.

    Dang, another one. This is getting all too common. Sad.

    RIP, and thank you for the cool music in a time in my life when I needed it!

    Say "Hi" to Benjamin.

    Dayum, that’s sad news. Those guys were part of my introduction to “real” music when they came out.

    Let The Good Times Roll Ric - RIP.
