One of the all time great American songwriters. "Good Times Roll", "Let's Go", "You're All I Got Tonight"

Candy-O and Shake it up- classics. On the positive side, being married to Paulina Porizkova is a pretty good life. :mrgreen:

Sad to see all these old rockers changing addresses. Sobering to this 75 year-old. On a side note, check out Paulina earlier this year; molher of two grown children; married to Ocasek for 30 years; now age 54...

The Cars played the Greensboro Colosseum in summer '85 when they were at the peak of their popularity. A huge group of us that were in summer school in Boone drove down together in 3 cars for the show. Good times...
