As the Destination Marketing arena becomes increasingly complex, DMOproZ strives to provide an easily accessed Knowledge Bank for DMO pros around the world. From White Papers to cutting edge Research to our recommendations on books to make you think, videos to encourage your creativity and blogs to keep you current.

And, we want this to be a two-way street. When you see a great resource that would be a benefit to the DMO collective, shoot it our way and we'll post it up for your peers. 


Ric Ocasek

RicoThe Cars were an enigma. Part punk, part new wave and part smooth (the Benjamin Orr effect). But it was clearly Ric Ocasek's band.

A writer for Rolling Stone described the band as having "taken some important but disparate contemporary trends—punk minimalism, the labyrinthine synthesizer and guitar textures of art rock, the '50s rockabilly revival and the melodious terseness of power pop—and mixed them into a personal and appealing blend."

The band was inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame last year...and it was the last time Ric performed on stage.

On this Music Friday, as we say farewell, we're going with "My Best Friend's Girlfriend" from a 1978 concert in Paris.
