Possibly Tony Mills, although he was not quite as well-known in the U.S. compared to Eddie Money or Ric Ocasek.

Mills was the lead singer for heavy-metal bands TNT and Shy. He died on Sept. 18, 2019, just three days after Ocasek's death, and five days after Money's death.

According to his wife's (Linda) Facebook page:
Quote:
"...He spent a lot of time in his workshop fixing up his dirtbike so he could ride it later this autumn. The evening before he passed, he managed to whisper:

"I've had a good life. I've had a GOOD life. I'm just a bit pissed about the bike."

Sad

He also had a pretty good solo career as well. His last solo album came out in June and was called Beyond The Law.
