Fresh on the heels of their induction to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, both RIC OCASEK & (drummer) DAVID ROBINSON of The Cars have acknowledged that in all probability, all the original members (sans Benjamin Orr who died in 2000) will reunite and play together one more time at the induction ceremony in April. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, CARS leader Ric Ocasek, commenting on the question of The Cars performing said, "We probably will. I don't know in which way we will. I've been thinking about that a bit since it came up. There's all kinds of different scenarios we could do. I don't know how, but I assume it would be expected and I'd be prepared for that."  In the same article (but different interview), David Robinson admitted that members of the group had yet to discuss it, and he expressed confidence that a reunion would happen, remarking, "I don't know why we wouldn't...I gotta drag my drums out and practice a bit." While there will be some sadness over the absence of Bassist/Singer Benjamin Orr, Mr. Robinson opines that Orr would have been "overjoyed" at the band's induction to the HOF. Additionally, Robinson pointed out, "Ben's from Cleveland, and has been sort of a legend there since he was a teenager. The town would go crazy if he were still alive and made a comeback appearance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame." Ocasek added, "I know Ben would have been flipped out by it."

Rock On, CARS!
