Ric Ocasek singer for The Cars dies at 75 Police

While details surrounding his death are still unclear, an NYPD spokesperson confirms Ocasek was "found unresponsive" at his Manhattan townhouse on Sunday.

It added: "Their first two albums (1978's The Cars and 1979's Candy-O) were new wave classics; their fifth album, 1984's Heartbeat City, was a modern pop masterpiece fueled by a run of videos that became MTV staples".

In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine ahead of the band's induction into the Hall of Fame, Ocasek described playing there as "a good cap on the bottle" after so many years. The record contained the Osasek-written hits "Just What I Needed", "My Best Friend's Girl" and "Good Times Roll".

We will always remember Ric Ocasek, especially for his time with The Cars.

The group disbanded in the late 1980s but reunited for the album Move Like This in 2012.

The Cars called it quits in 1988 and Orr died from pancreatic cancer in 2000.

After the final dissolution of the Cars, Ocasek, who often spoke of his dislike for touring, produced dozens of albums, released solo material, wrote poetry and made visual art.

He was an acclaimed producer, working with artists including Bad Brains, Nada Surf, Bad Religion and Guided By Voices. Ocasek had six sons, two from each of his three marriages. After graduating high school he had stints at Antioch College and Bowling Green State University in the mid-1960s before dropping out to pursue music. In the 1970s they relocated to Boston and formed bands including the folk-rock Milkwood and also played as an acoustic duo before finding their calling when they created The Cars.
