Agreed, the Cars music was something I always came back to over the years. Candy-O album my absolute fave. When hearing about this I was really shocked to find out he was 75! Had no idea he was in his mid 30’s when the Cars debut arrived—

What an absolute talent. What I liked about the cars - is they had great music and they were great fun.
They were innovators.
