You Might Think It's Foolish

Reunion news from

Rock supergroup THE CARS are negotiating a comeback tour almost 20 years after they split. The existing members of the American band, which recorded LIVE AID anthem DRIVE, last toured together in the late 1980s but now lead guitarist ELLIOT EASTON has confessed there are plans to return to the live circuit.

He says, "We're in the process of trying to put The Cars back together... I think GREG (HAWKES), DAVID (ROBINSON) and myself would consider it if RIC (OCASEK) wanted to." One bandmate who wouldn't return for the reunion is singer BENJAMIN ORR, who died in 2005.
This is a great idea, of course, but I worry that they might not be able to re-create their high-energy live show.
