NBC reports that around 4 p.m. local time, police received a call of an unconscious male at his townhouse on East 19th Street.

Ric Ocasek was discovered by estranged wife Paulina Porizkova at around 4.14pm inside his Gramercy Park home in New York, Page Six reported.

Merging guitar rock with synthesizer-based pop, their early hits included Just What I Needed, My Best Friend's Girl and Good Times Roll. Their video for "Double Life" was the 21st video ever played on the new cable channel, according to VH1. The pair first met while filming the music video for "Drive", another Cars hit.

Ocasek and Porizkova were married for 28 years before their breakup last year. They had two children together.

Eddie Money, ‘Real Money’ Star And Classic Rock Stalwart, Dead At 70
Eddie Money , a singer and musician best known for his 1977 hit " Two Tickets to Paradise ", has died of cancer , Variety reports. The family dynamic was documented on a reality TV show Real Money that premiered past year .

He was known for his mop of black hair and black sunglasses, which featured in numerous band's videos, including "You Might Think" in 1984. His 1986 single "Emotion in Motion" was Ocasek's only song to crack the Top 40 without The Cars behind him.

"It's quite unusual to be here without him", Ocasek said. They were a decade older than many of their modern-rock compatriots but became one of the most essential American bands of the late 1970s and 1980s with their fusion of new wave, 1960s pop and 1970s glam.

The album was a flop so they created a few more groups before finally settling on The Cars, made up of Ocasek, Orr, Greg Hawkes and David Robinson.

"It's kind of weird because it's like a lifetime", Ocasek told the magazine, looking back at the history of The Cars. "It is a lifetime".
