NEW YORK -- Ric Ocasek , The Cars frontman whose deadpan vocal delivery and lanky, sunglassed look defined a rock era with chart-topping hits like...

The New York Police Department said that officers found the 75-year-old Ocasek at about 4 p.m. after responding to a 911 call. They said there were no signs of foul play and that the medical examiner was to determine a cause of death.

Ocasek's minimalist, half-spoken deadpan vocals set made the band's sound, and his long, lanky appearance formed their lasting image.

The band's commercial peak came with 1984's "Heartbeat City," which featured the hit singles "You Might Think" and "Magic," sung by Ocasek, and the atypical ballad "Drive," sung by Orr.

The Cars were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2018 after being nominated twice before. During the ceremony, Ocasek paid tribute to Orr, who died in 2000 of pancreatic cancer.

He grew up in Baltimore, and his family moved to Cleveland when he was a teenager. After graduating high school, he had stints at Antioch College and Bowling Green State University in the mid-1960s before dropping out to pursue music.
