Ric Ocasek lead singer of The Cars passed away over the weekend at the age of 75. I am seeing two different birthdays on social media 1949 and 1944. Wikipedia says he was born in 1944, so we’ll go with that. Ocasek  was married to Paulina Porizkova  in 1989 but the couple recently split and it was Paulina who found Ric unresponsive and called 911. Eddie Money and Ric Ocasek both gone so close together.
