How We Formed

The Cars formed out of a common passion for music and a series of collaborations amongst friends. Ric and Ben met in Ohio were they began performing as a duo. Achieving moderate success the pair decided that relocating to the east would advance their career in the music industry. Once in Boston they met Greg, a music student and talented keyboardist, who collaborated with them on a few projects but eventually played in another band. Elliot was the next member of the band to actually play along side Ric and Ben. Looking to bring a Rock 'n' Roll sound to their music, the band added David as a drummer and rejoined with Greg at keyboard. David then branded the band "The Cars" and the rest is history!

Our Future

Fans have united to let us know that getting The Cars into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is important to them. We are humbled greatly by the amount of support that we receive from you all. We are glad to unite with you for the common goal of being inducted into the Hall of Fame. As we continue to collaborate on new music, in addition to solo projects, we will keep all of you updated through our Facebook, Myspace, and events section of this website. We look forward to seeing you all at future Cars events!
