Most recognized for: Ric’s gaunt physique and penchant for wayfarer sunglasses made him one of the more recognizable figures in the world of 80’s pop music. As front man for The Cars, he wrote all of their hits, but didn’t manage to find much solo success after the group’s 1988 breakup. Throughout it all, his ‘look’ remained the same… which made ID’ing the body found inside his NYC apartment that much easier.
