Heard this early this morning. No cause released, but is not expected to be abnormal according to early reports.


So many great songs... Just posted one fav.

I knew someone would get around to this post. Sad. The Cars were one of those bands that defined the sound of the ‘80s/New Wave scene.
...and another fades away...

WMSE (local college station- best station in MKE or most places I have been to) has been playing The Cars all afternoon and the station manager has encyclopedic knowledge of many types of music, which is great because he explains different aspects of bands, musicians, their careers, and production.

Who knew that the producer of the first three Cars albums was the same as the one who produced Queen through their most productive years?

I was never a big Cars fan, but they were big in my teen years and I liked a few songs. It's a bummer man. All the cool edgy young famous people from my youth are starting to drop like flies...
