    RIP: Ric Ocasek (The Cars)

    Found out about his death last night on my local TV's news....don't know the cause of death; he was found by his separated wife.

    The "he was found" part sounds awful, RIP.

    I know this is fucked up but when I hear of someone's passing and it's not, you know...suicide :/ it feels slightly less horrible. I mean it's still horrible, but it's like maybe those last moments weren't spent in utter despair.. I don't know... Of course at the same time mental health can wreck havoc on physical health as well (thinking of Daniel Johnston too, another hard one to realize is gone.)

    Damn it. I hope his family gets through this ok.

    The Cars were alright, but I loved his first two solo albums.

    was surprised to find out how old he was tbh. i guess he was in his mid-30s when that first cars album came out, which makes the success of that album (basically front to back huge hits) even more surprising

    The Conan YouTube channel posted one of his appearances from 2005, presumably as a memorial. A lot of people doing what little they can to pay their respects.
    RIP.
