09/16/2019
The Cars frontman Ric Ocasek found dead in Manhattan townhouse

I was privileged to know and work with Ric Ocasek musically and professionally when I was Director of A&R at Elektra Records in the early 2000's, and he was also my neighbor in NYC. Our VP of Rock A&R was let go (the second in my tenure) and it was announced by our CEO Sylvia Rhone that Ric had been hired to take his place, making him one of my bosses, with an office just feet away from mine.

In an area of the business full of surreal creative/business encounters/relationships with people you grew up idolizing and listening to, this was on an entirely different level. There were only a few of us left in the A&R department that would report to him (this was leading up to the Elektra/Atlantic merger) and we had no idea what to expect. We watched movers and decorators slowly bring loads of his personal, modern furniture to decorate his office, rather than the standard company fare. The office then sat furnished but unoccupied for weeks as we wondered if/when he would ever show. And then one day, quiet and unannounced, in walked Ric, straight into his office, just sitting there.

I conjured up the confidence to walk in and introduce myself. I was a huge fan of The Cars as a kid, having borrowed all the records from my older brother, and grew to appreciate them even more over time as a fan of music and being in the business. I expressed this as well as how big of a fan I was of his production, including his work with Bad Brains, which he appreciated. One thing lead to another and the conversation turned to what part of NYC each other lived, when we learned we were neighbors, just yards away from each other, me at 18th and Irving, and Ric at 19th and Irving. He then said straight faced to the few of us that would report to him, with the look of a rock star mixed with someone that had done it all in the business and had no F’s left to give, that "I don't need to be here."

And he wasn’t much at all after that, preferring to work from his home instead of the corporate label office. But how cool was it to be able to talk music with him, and drop off music and demos at his home, right around the corner from mine, and bump into him on the block, Paulina too, walking our dogs or on the way somewhere.

I moved out of the neighborhood a few years ago but often return and always think about Ric and his family when I walk by his home, feeling blessed to have made his acquaintance the way I did. And now that’s where he passed.

RIP Ric, you were an incredible human being, your mark on music is indelible and will live on forever, and I’m blessed to have known you. #ricocasek #thecars #musicbiz

He appeared to have died from natural causes.

So sad to hear the news about Ric Ocasek tonight. I got to know and work with Ric musically and professionally when I was Director of A&R at Elektra Records in the early 2000's, and he was also my neighbor in NYC. Our VP of Rock A&R was let go (the second in my tenure) and it was announced by our CEO Sylvia Rhone that Ric had been hired to take his place, making him one of my bosses, with an office just feet away from mine.

There were only a few of us left in the A&R department that would report to him (this was leading up to the Elektra/Atlantic merger) and we had no idea what to expect. We watched movers and decorators slowly bring loads of his personal, modern furniture to decorate his office, rather than the standard company fare. The office then sat furnished but unoccupied for weeks as we wondered if/when he would ever show. And then one day, quiet and unannounced, in walked Ric, straight into his office, just sitting there.
