    Ric Ocasek, frontman of The Cars and famed indie rock record producer, has died at the age of 75. Police found Ocasek at his home in New York on Sunday afternoon, local time. The New York City medical examiner's office has confirmed he died of hypertensive and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease Ocasek was an icon of new wave music in the late 1970s and throughout the 1980s, thanks to a string of mammoth hits he penned and sang for The Cars. The band's debut album, released in 1978, featured some of the biggest pop songs of the modern era. Songs like 'Just What I Needed', 'My Best Friends Girl', 'Good Times Roll' and 'You're All I Got Tonight' are enduring classics. Classic Albums: The Cars – The Cars The ensuing years saw the band remain in the charts through hits like 'Let's Go', from 1979's Candy-O, and 'Drive' and 'You Might Think' from 1984's Heartbeat City. Ocasek also made seven solo albums throughout his career, enjoying a top ten hit in Australia with his 1986 single 'Emotion In Motion'. As well as performing as a musician, Ocasek was an in-demand record producer. Some of his earliest work was with the revered New York art-punk duo Suicide. His punk rock credentials grew further thanks to his work on Bad Brains' classic 1983 album Rock For Light. In 1994, Ocasek produced the acclaimed self-titled debut album from then-fledgling indie rock band Weezer. The record, famously known as The Blue Album, became one of the defining albums of the 90s, selling tens of millions of copies and establishing Weezer as one of the leading indie rock bands on the planet. Ocasek would go on to produce the band's 2000 self-titled release (aka The Green Album) and their 2014 release Everything Will Be Alright in the End. Following the Weezer record, Ocasek was enlisted to make records with the likes of Guided By Voices, Nada Surf, Bad Religion and many more. The Cars, who had split in 1988, reformed in 2010 without founding member Benjamin Orr, who died in 2000. The band released their final album, Move Like This, in 2011.

    Eddie Money, Two Tickets to Paradise singer, dies at 70 14 September 2019 Share this with Facebook Share this with Messenger Share this with Twitter Share this with Email Share Image copyrightREUTERS Image captionEddie Money revealed last month he had stage four oesophageal cancer American singer Eddie Money, who had major US chart success in the 70s and 80s with songs such as Two Tickets to Paradise and Take Me Home Tonight, has died at the age of 70. Money released 11 albums and sold nearly 30 million records in a career that spanned four decades. He also starred in Real Money, a reality series that debuted last year. It was on a clip for the show last month that he revealed he had stage four oesophageal cancer. The Money family released a statement saying: "It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our loving husband and father. It's so hard to imagine our world without him. However he will live on forever through his music." BBC artist page - Eddie Money Eddie Money, born Edward Joseph Mahoney in Brooklyn, New York in 1949, released his first, self-titled album in 1977. It sold more than two million copies and spawned hits such as Baby Hold On. He took advantage of the growth of MTV in the early 80s and after a dip in sales returned with the highly successful Can't Hold Back album in 1986. Take Me Home Tonight, a duet with Ronnie Spector from that album, was his biggest singles chart success, reaching number four in the US. Money revealed his cancer diagnosis on 24 August in a clip for the second series of Real Money, on cable and satellite network AXS TV. "I thought I was just going in to get a check-up, and he told me I got cancer," he says in the clip. "Am I gonna live a long time? Who knows, it's in God's hands. But you know what? I'll take every day I can get. Every day above ground is a good day." Money is survived by his wife and five children.
