    Ric Ocasek, lead sing of The Cars at 75. Seems like we're losing these rock legends pretty regularly.

    Sadly, we're going to see a bunch of these legends dropping in the future. Bands like the Stones, the Who, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath/Ozzy and even KISS are getting up there in age.

    That is a tough one; The Cars were one of my all-time favorites.

    After you get past all the big hits, there were so many other great songs such as All Mixed Up, It’s All I Can Do; Cruiser; Misfit Kid; Dangerous Type, and on and on ….

    The two most prominent band members now deceased, Ric Ocasek and Ben Orr (from Parma).

    The first two LPs have very few songs that are not great

    Here's an article on the coming rock legend apocalypse.  Springsteen (70 next month) is the young pup of the bunch.

    Gonna be weird to see Keith Richards outlive every single other member of those bands. And all the rest of us.

    Sid Haig aka Captain Spaulding at 80

    Last year, I went through a phase where I bought a bunch of those cheap-ass horror movie compilations produced by Echo Bridge where you'd get a bunch of direct-to-video stuff by Full Moon, as well as micro-budget stuff, made-for-TV movies and the occasional name film. I was impressed by how prolific Haig was. He'd seem to be on something on about every compilation, doing a small role. Seemed to really love his status as a B-movie horror icon and had fun doing those roles. Kinda bums me out that he's gone; seemed like a cool guy who'd have been fun to talk to about his career and his films for a bit.

    Late to the party here (just noticed this). I agree on Haig. He did a ton of those flicks. The fact he had a pretty unique look (for horror) didn't hurt. Seems like there are a select few who relish the B-Movie horror career. Bruce Campbell (Ash from Evil Dead) is another.
