He died yesterday at his home at 75 years old. I have enjoyed Rick's music over the last few decades. May he rest in peace.

    One of my all time favorite songs (but Rick didn't sing it-- the bass player did)...

    So...Paulina is single? 
    When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.

    She and Ric separated in May, 2017.

    You could've mentioned this 28 months ago.

    You didn't ask.  I'm not a mind reader, nor am I the Oracle of Delphi.

    Wasn't the oracle a woman?

    Exactly!  I am male.  Not a mind reader.  The best you'll get from me is information after the fact, or monosyllabic grunts.

    He made some truly iconic tunes with the Cars. Some of my earliest radio memories are from that band.

    Yes, the "Pythia" or "Pythoness". A very sacred person in a very sacred place.
    I actually remember "Just what I needed".
