Oh yes, Paulina Porizkova’s husband. If anyone deserves the overused title of Supermodel,
Cobra: good point about the loss, role and influence of Benjamin Orr. A haunted artist.
In 1979 I was a senior in high school, my sisters off to college and my parents left me home alone for a month while they went to Hawaii.... with a full pantry of food and checks made out to the grocery store, dad’s Forest green Ford F-250 pickup, and my mom’s nearly new, leather lined, sun-roofed, stick shift luxury Toyota Cressida, two big bird dogs, a house on the waterfront of Lake Washington/Mercer Island , a dock and boathouse, 12’ Aluminum Mirrorcraft and 7.5 Evinrude and a bright orange Bayliner ski boat with 120 horsepower.
It was really fun.
I had two big parties.... with live bands. And they played the Cars!
And Rick Ocasek’s music was excellent. Crisp. Fun lyrics.
“Let them brush your Rock ‘n Roll hair. Let the good times roll.”
My favorite Car’s song?
“Moving In Stereo”. Love that bass line...Turn it up!
Yes, I’d relive that month if I could.
