greginduction“And finally, I’d like to give my acknowledgement to Ben Orr. How fitting that we are in Cleveland tonight. Without Ben’s innate talent and rock star good looks, it’s unlikely we would be here tonight.” — Greg Hawkes, in his acceptance speech during The Cars’ induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, April 14, 2018

  1. I loove every word of River Of Fire and especially the first verse…it’s soo beautiful, deep and haunting. “My life you hold in your heart…I look for the light, I wait in the dark. Burning emotions I’m drawn to the flame, chasing the shadows that call out your name” Yes this song definitely touches me the most !! ❤

  2. I remember exactly how I felt when he said this. A band is truly a sum of it’s parts…each one of equal import. I will say, however, that I truly believe Ben on lead vocals allowed them to be noticed in a way that they would not have been no matter how talented they each were as musicians.
