    Ric Ocasek, who with Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees the Cars pioneered — or even defined — the new wave genre and released arguably one of the most perfect debut albums of all time, died Sunday in his Manhattan townhouse at age 75. No cause of death has been revealed at press time.

    Ocasek’s hiccuppy vocals, deadpan delivery, edgy pop smarts, beatnik-poetry-inspired lyrics, and cool-cat persona helped make the Cars one of the most important bands not just of the ‘70s and ‘80s, but of all time — a rare act that enjoyed both massive commercial success and critical adoration, both hipster college radio play and high rotation on MTV.

    And some of my earliest listening music. I came to the life of music at the end of the 70's and beginning of 80's. Was 12 years old in 1980. Grew up with a lot of their music, and Ric was a musical genius IMO!!
