It's hard to believe he's gone. I thought they had some truly great music and production.

I was a bit surprised to see he was 75.

Yeah, I saw that. I liked their music, so different than what everyone else was doing at the time.

Yes, very sad...
Rick was the front-man for the 80's band 'The Cars'. He was described as a "New Wave Rock visionary"

This might belong in the songwriting forum. While there is one forumite who thinks that Pat Pattison is overblown, I thank him for pointing out the clever things that the Cars did to make their songs memorable and fun. One of the tricks that Pat points out is how often the Cars would use odd number of lines for bridge and prechorus sections. Go listen to their hits and you will see that he is right about that. It gives the songs a little ‘snap’ in addition to the great use of rock instrumentation and ‘naked’ unadorned synth parts that defined pop rock for their time

Oh and one other thing we probably owe to him in honor: it’s Ric, not Rick.

Agreed. I changed the title. Good catch.

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.
