“I remember one of the happiest days of my life was when we did our first promotional tour for the album. We were in Cleveland and riding in the backseat of the promoter’s car when ‘Stay the Night’ came on the radio for the first time. We were so excited and yelling like kids!” — Diane Grey Page, Let’s Go! Benjamin Orr and The Cars by Joe Milliken

  1. It’s a shame they couldn’t stay together. I believe Diane when she said Benjamin told her she was the love of his life. We always see the beautify before we feel the pain.

  2. It’s so great he put out The Lace. It was a long time coming. You can just feel the pride and joy he had about the album, while reading his comments in this article.

  3. Why didn’t anyone help him with his alcohol use and smoking – those surely contributed to pancreatic cancer. He likely suffered with pancreatitis for a while before it developed into cancer.
