    The linked article describes Paulina as his “estranged wife” so I guess not.

    Aw man. This hurts. They were playing Shake It Up at work and I was thinking I missed The Cars. RIP

    God, he was great at making a catchy pop hook. And must have been something to have hooked Paulina for so long.

    I think Just What I Needed was my favorite.

    ^That's one of my favorites, too. Benjamin Orr sang Just What I Needed but he's dead, too.

    Remember when that video for You Might Think was the height of special effects?

    I loved his music videos and songs obviously. I was always happy about him and Paula, but they split up a year or so ago. Last time I cried over losing a musician was Tom Petty. This is the new one I'll cry for is Ric.

    I loved Ric's voice. It was so unique. Let The Good Times Roll was one of my favorites. R.I.P. Ric.

    I'm so sad. I can't believe he's gone... didn't know he was 75! That's too young though. RIP.
