Greg Hawkes didn't necessarily expect to still be performing the music of The Cars at this stage of his life. But after playing a few of the iconic tunes with the young rock band Eddie Japan, he realized they were too good to leave on the shelf.
So the hugely influential keyboardist has hit the road for a handful of shows that brings him to the Landis Theater Saturday night in Vineland, NJ. Hawkes and Eddie Japan will deliver an evening of Cars classics, including most of the band's legendary debut album.
Hawkes joined Philly Rock Live to talk about the upcoming show and share stories and highlights from his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame career, including the early days of The Cars and finding out Paul McCartney was a fan.
Check out the full interview with Kevin, Johnny, and special guest Andy Vineberg at the 30 minute mark of the file below.
