Did You Know?
A rock legend recently explained how he was inspired to write one of the biggest 80's rock songs after he was caught speeding in Upstate NY while on his way from Albany Airport to Lake Placid for a show.
Thinking that the speed limit back in the 1980s was 65 MPH, this lead-footed rocker gassed it up to 62 MPH, only to get pulled over. Here's the rest of the story:
"It took me 16 hours to get to L.A.
Gonna write me up a 125
Post my face wanted dead or alive
Take my license, all that jive
I can't drive 55!"
Sammy Hagar claims that he was traveling through Albany when he got the speeding ticket that inspired his '80s hit "I Can't Drive 55!"
