The Cars, c. 1977; Danny Louis on the far right.

“Ben was a good friend, and we played a lot of great music together in just a few short years. We were pals. I’ve only known a few great singers who were pure ‘naturals’ like Ben. He just opened his mouth to sing and sounded perfect—like a hit record.

“His musicianship was stellar, and he was just a very fun guy to know and hang out with. He was consistently a good and kind fellow, and I’ll always miss him and remember fondly all the good times we spent together.” — Danny Louis of Gov’t Mule, formerly with Cap’n Swing and founding member of The Cars, Let’s Go! Benjamin Orr and The Cars by Joe Milliken, p. 65

      1. Thank you, dear friends ❤ We have a few dangerous days ahead this week, Thursday and Friday with temperatures near or in the 40's C which is above 100 F and with the strong winds and drought it is very dangerous. Fingers crossed we get through this without new fires. My heart goes to those suffering and the poor wildlife, so far our area has been safe this season. Lots of love to you and hugs
