    While I enjoyed Eddie's music, Ric was quite important to me. My best memories of my youth were to a Cars soundtrack. My first "naughty" car (Tr7) had a cassette player precariously balanced in the hole in the dash and the Cars were in it more than anything else.

    I feel so old now.

    I had an X-1/9

    I had a TR-4. Wish I still did! I missed the cars when they were hot, but once I discovered them I played their music all the time.

    I feel so old too. I wonder how many of us were alive when Eddie Money and the Cars first appeared?

    I had forgotten about that line Eddie slipped in....I was just reading that he said it cost him a lot of money in lost airplay.

    Ric seemed like a truly nice guy. And proof there was hope for tall dorky looking guys....

    My god, I am feeling really old. I keep thinking that these guys who were just a few years older than me were in their 50's. Actually they are/were in their 70's ..... where has the time gone? I guess looking at my DOB on my drivers license won't make me feel any better.

    So much lost life "just getting things over with" cuz paradise is coming next week.
    Talk about never living in the moment and pissing time away. What a waste:(
