The Cars discuss the possibility of a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame reunion

music news 14/12/2017

The Cars are getting ready to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame but will they reunite for the induction?

They reunited back in 2010 and now the surviving members of The Cars have talked about the possibilty of another reunion.

Both Ric Ocasek and drummer David Robinson say there's a good chance fans will get to see them up onstage at least one more time.

"We probably will," Ocasek told Rolling Stone. "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."

Robinson admitted that the members of the group "haven't talked about it" yet, but he said he was also confident a reunion would happen during a separate talk with Rolling Stone. "I don't know why we wouldn't," he mused. "I gotta drag my drums out and practice a bit."

In 2000 bassist and singer Benjamin Orr died after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. 

Robinson said Orr would be "overjoyed" by the band's entry into the Hall.

"He's from Cleveland," Robinson pointed out. "Ben has been sort of a legend in Cleveland 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."
