It was listening to Stephen Colbert reminisce about Ric Ocasek and just how much the late musician and the music of the Cars had on his teenage life. How much Ocasek and his music lived with him through his college years and the sheer joy of being able to work with his hero. It was beyond Colbert being another fan boy. He personally knew Ric Ocasek, and so his recent passing hit home, heart and head. It certainly got into this head.
