The song "Rockaway" (from 1990 "Fireball Zone") was Ric's last charted song NOT in the Billboard Hot 100 but on Billboard's Mainstream Rock & Modern Rock Charts.

Re: Ric Ocasek RIP

Ric's "Troublizing" (from 1997 on Columbia) is his best solo album. Produced by Billy Corgan, lead singer of The Smashing Pumpkins!! His last album 2005 "Nexterday" isn't bad either!!

Re: Ric Ocasek (The Cars) dies at 75

Ric's "Troublizing" (from 1997 on Columbia) remains his best effort. That album did NOT charted in Billboard & no radio airplay!! Produced by Billy Corgan, lead singer of The Smashing Pumpkins!! The CD's "Quick Change World" (1993) & his final solo project "Nexterday" (2005) not too bad either!!
