    The Cars are definitely one of my favorite bands - next to maybe Aerosmith, perhaps the best band from Boston. My mom played lots of yacht rock (then called soft rock) in the car on the way to school, so I had heavy exposure to "Drive". By high school, I'd picked up their Greatest Hits CD - of course, not really knowing that their first album could also essentially function as a Greatest Hits album in itself.

    I also love New Wave, so one of my favorites of theirs is a slightly lesser known song..."I'm Not the One". It's moody, sad, and haunting...about a 180 degree turn from the more popular "Magic" and "Shake it Up".

    Was at this

    Was cutting lawn my buds showed up and said let’s hit Paradise- left yard half cut, left a note and bolted

    We had good connections and had phenomenal seats

    Tickets probably $5 ?

    I have more of an issue with the admissions people who were able to be bought. If they had some integrity, this couldn't happen.

    All the energy in this situation is born from a place of lack. Admissions people who can be bribes (thats lack), moms who don't believe in their kids (thats lack), moms who think they cant succeed without monetary offering (thats lack). The young people here are born into that theory of scarcity and live it also.

    A shift in thoughts here, a change of perspective, and none of this happens. This is all scarcity and fear based.

    I'd like to add, a lack of common sense.

    With you there, the late Tom Petty and the Cars are, by far my two favorite bands. Didn`t get to see the Cars live a ton (4 times) as they didn`t do the touring thing often and they had an ill deserved rep for not being a great band live which I call BS to as often those who make comments like that expected a band come out and do back flips, wow you with crazy lighting or pyrotechnics and/or get the crowd pumped up, that just wasn`t them. One of my ex`s used to say I drove her nuts playing the Cars as often as I did.

    Few bands could bring what they brought, unique and quirky lyrics, funky synth/keyboards, the impossible to duplicate voice of Ocasek, Ben Orr on vocals/bass , Easton with his terribly underrated playing and Robinson on drums, incredible harmonies and they weren`t afraid to try new things on each album. I was/am one of the few who loved Ocasek`s Beatitude album and there`s rarely a CD around the house (yep I still have them) and/or playlist that doesn`t have at least a half dozen Cars tunes on them.

    RIP

    A true journalist who did things the right way.

    I am sad about this as she was someone we discussed in school quite a bit along with Barbara Walters.

    RIP Cokie
