    Ric Ocasik RIP

    Appears to be legit. Hard to believe he was 75.

    He had fallen off my radar. 75 is not that old. RIP.

    I'm betting it was either a stroke or a heart attack...

    75 isn't that old, I just didn't realize he was that old. I saw Greg Hawkes a few weeks ago. Playing keyboards for Todd Rundgren. Looked it up and he is only 66.

    That Cars song "You Might Think" is deeply embedded in my memory. Had it on 45 years ago. Yet another ghost.

    He grew up about 2 miles from me here in Towson, Maryland. Ric lived in this house** from age 8 to 16. Then his family moved to Ohio which is where his father Ted was from. It appears that Ric took almost 5 yrs off his age once THE CARS started rolling. His bio always claimed that he was born in !949. He was a 1963 high school graduate and married his first wife Constance that year as well. Ric had 2 sons with each of his 3 wives.

    I remember an interview with his wife, Paulina Poriskova(sp?), shortly after their marriage. She said she was attracted to him "because he looked like a fly." Weird but true.

    Totally crushed by this. I met him once when we were on the same flight. Classy king of cool with carisma like no other. RIP Ric. What a talent and a gentleman forever embedded in my heart. His wife was the lucky one
    I told my lawyer he's better step it up or we would both end up on an episode of "SNAPPED"

    Yeah - lots of people I know are sexually attracted to flies.
    A few are sexually attracted to roaches - I think that's slightly weird.

    There may be footage of it out there since it was during an MTV interview. You'll see what I mean if you watch it.

    As a person born in the early 1960s I find most of
    the music people I enjoyed in the 1970s and early
    1980s are dying off.(Sad but true)
    Carolyn(1958-2009) always in my heart.
