Motley Crue Drummer Tommy Lee was born on this day, October 3rd in 1962. You can read an hilarious interview I did with Tommy way back in 2002 at This Link. Happy Birthday, Tommy!
On This Date, October 3rd in 2000: Benjamin Orr, bassist and one of the vocalists for The Cars died of pancreatic cancer at his home in Atlanta, GA. He was 53 years old. Ben sang lead on The Cars’ breakthrough hit, “Just What I Needed” and on the band’s biggest hit, “Drive.” Also, he was super hot. RIP Ben!
