RIP Ric Ocasek. Really liked their first two albums.  Saw them in concert just once, but a good show.

Saw them in Houston in '82 or '83. Still have the first albumn and CandyO. Can't say what happened to the T-shirt? Can't remember who opened for them either? Really enjoyed their different style. One of a kind sound for sure.

In the summer of '79 myself and my friends got our drivers licenses

My close friend had a '75ish Mazda RX3 with a Pioneer cassette deck

We listened to so much music in that car - Rush, Boston, Journey, Kansas, Shooting Star, etc.

Still to this very day my most powerful memory of driving around in my friends Mazda was listening to the Cars first album

Fast forward four decades

I don't know why but every time I pop that Disc into the player I'm taken back to the Summer of '79 driving in that Mazda

Thanks for the memories Pete, I'll see you on the other side




Rest in Peace Ric.........................

Wow Mike, a shout out to Shooting Star?  Seriously.  I saw them warm up for Blue Oyster Cult and Foghat...they were great.   Must be 25 years ago I was in a CD store (remember those) and came across their greatest hits on CD.  Still have that. [thumb] Well, and Rush?  [thumb][thumb][thumb]

In the late 70's, the 'cool' rock station in Houston would play a new LP in its entirety at midnight (on Sundays? I think) and I taped many new LPs that way.   Usually it was an established act but sometimes it was some new unheard of band.  One new band I'd not heard of was 'The Cars' but by the second tune I was happy that I'd stuck a cassette into the recorder.

They wrote a bunch of great songs and made a bunch of great albums!  And, strangely, they were one of the only (maybe THE only) 'new wave' bands that the 'punk weirdos' (at the time, there were maybe 5 in my high school) and the 'jocks' all liked.  Great songs will do that!
