    I liked the Cars back in the day; still do, although I listen rarely anymore. "Let the Good Times Roll," "My Best Friend's Girl," and "All That I Needed" were all over the radio my when I was in high school. Elliot Easton is a fantastic guitarist.

    same here. Elliot had a new twist but could rock the old Carl Perkins type stuff .. he was/is a early major player in the Fender Custom Shop per the book.

    the first Cars album is one of my top fav's, it was recorded on 4 track too if I recall (or maybe the radio demo was?). the following albums I bought never matched the first, imo. good tunes and in a time of Disco.....Cars were a guitar based band without dancing required..more pop than the Ramones but good stuff. Im curious what their gear was and studios used.

    Early in 1977, the Cars sent a demo tape of "Just What I Needed" to the influential Boston radio station WBCN and it quickly became the station's most-requested song. For the remainder of 1977, the Cars played Boston clubs, and by the end of the year they signed with Elektra. The group's eponymous debut album appeared in the summer of 1978 and it slowly built a following thanks to the hit singles "Just What I Needed" (number 27), "My Best Friend's Girl" (number 35), and "Good Times Roll" (number 41). The Cars stayed on the charts for over two-and-a-half years, delaying the release of the group's second album, and it eventually sold over six million copies.

    Just saw that in the news...sad day.

    One of my favorites...like the flip side of Bonham...both musical drummers, Bonham going for more power, Baker more of the Jazz style, but without a doubt, a Rock drummer all the way.

    Well.... I'm still alive. Not that anyone here remembers me.

    It's saddens me to hear about the passing of Tom Neville. He was a prince of a guy. I tried to post in the thread above, but it's over 6 months old and wouldn't let me.

    RIP old friend.
