Ric Ocasek on Cars reunion: There's no replacing Benjamin Orr



Publicity photoRic Ocasek is talking about The Cars again. The reunited band's new album -- Move Like This -- is due out May 10 so what perfect timing to give an interview to NPR. Here are some highlights:

ON NEED TO REUNITE: "I thought, 'Well, who could play these [songs] the best? How could I make this easy on myself? So I called the guys to see if they wanted to make another record."

ON THE BAND'S MOVING ON WITHOUT BASSIST BENJAMIN ORR: "It was a good reason not to. I certainly didn't want to replace him. That's why we didn't — we just kept the four of us."
