Ocasek Back In Driver's Seat

Speculation that Ric Ocasek and the Cars were getting back together surfaced during the summer (story).  The reunion rumor now has a song to back it up. Ocasek, Greg Hawkes, Elliot Easton and David Robinson, recording together for the first time in 23 years, posted a clip of a new song and a video on the band's Facebook page Wednesday (10/13).  Whether the song Blue Tip means a full album project is underway is anyone's guess at this point.  Hawkes and Easton enlisted Todd Rundgren, Kasim Sulton and Prairie Prince for an album and tour a couple of years ago using the name the New CarsBen Orr of the original lineup passed away a decade ago of pancreatic cancer.
