Awful to hear, did some great work across his life. First two Cars albums are especially great pop.

He was an excellent songwriter. Love many of their albums. Even their last album had some great songs on it. I had no idea he was so old, either. He looked the same for like decades.

Gonna jam Let's Go. What a great song. Awesome chorus and classic synth line. It's like literally the sound of the 80's as a decade in one song.
