Sammy Hagar Wrote I Can't Drive 55 About The Northway!!

We've all heard the song I Can't Drive 55 by Sammy Hagar (video below). But did you know the song was written about the highway in our backyard. In a new interview with Paul Schaffer (from the David Letterman show), Sammy tells the story about flying into Albany and renting a car to drive to Lake Placid where his young son was waiting for him. As he's driving up the Northway, a police officer pulls him over for going 62 in a 55. And the rest is music history. See the clip of the interview below, along with the video for the song. I love knowing that artists are inspired, no matter how, by the Capital Region!
