Ben was badass! He was the voice of the Cars...
Something a lot of folks don't realize. Loved his voice!

I just love him. He was a great singer, a great guitarist, and a complete angel, inside and out. A great musician and a great person. It makes me sad that he died in 2000 from pancreatic cancer. R.I.P. sweet Ben. You will be missed by many.

Benjamin was the total package: talented, humble, sexy, funny. #BenjaminOrr #neverenough
