NEW YORK -- Ric Ocasek, famed frontman for The Cars rock band, has been found dead in a Manhattan apartment.

The New York City police department said officers responding to a 911 call found the 75-year-old Ocasek at about 4 p.m. on Sunday. They said there was no sign of foul play and that the medical examiner was to determine a cause of death.

The Cars chart-topping hits in the late 1970s and 1980s included "Just What I Needed," "Shake It Up" and "Drive." The band was inducted last year into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

In May of 2018, model and actress Paulina Porizkova announced on social media that she and Ocasek had separated after 28 years of marriage. The pair first met while filming the music video for "Drive."

The song was certainly melancholy. But that was one beautiful woman!

Her name is Paulina Porizkova.

Ric Ocasek ended up marrying her.

The only reason I know this is her photo graced the inside of my locker in high school.

Guys were always stopping by my locker to take a look at her...it was my way of practicing "How to Win Friends and Influence People."
