According to Billboard, a Cars documentary will be released Oct. 17 as a DVD/CD package. Rick Ocasek produced it, and here's what he has to say:
"The backstage stuff is stuff in hotel rooms and dressing rooms," Ocasek told Billboard.com last summer. "I think it will be a nice insight into what the Cars were really like. There's interviews, video outtakes, kind of just hamming it up, and some nice club things that probably people wouldn't have gotten to see, from way back. I think it's the most comprehensive thing that's ever been put out on the Cars."
Also according to Billboard, the Todd Rundgren/surviving Cars project New Cars (such an Advanced name) is going back out on the road soon. Unfortunately, bassist Kasim Sulton won't be able to join them because he has a prior commitment to Meat Loaf, who will be touring in support of Bat Out of Hell III.
This has got to be one of the most Advanced news items I've ever seen.
