For this years Cache Bash in West Bend, I am doing a 12 part series called "80's One Hit Wonders"
When I posted on Facebook about it, there was a big response of people trying to guess the 12 songs
There were a lot of guesses that weren't on the list.
I have decided to expand the series beyond the Cache Bash.
This is the 4th in the "warm up" caches
The first 3 songs have been "new wave" pop songs.
How about a little something that rocks!!
The Red Rocker Sammy Hagar....remember this one??
I was on my way back from Africa. I did a safari for three months throughout Africa.
I was traveling for 24 hours, I got to New York City, changed planes, Albany, New York. Got in a rent-a-car.
Had a place in Lake Placid at the time, a little log cabin, I used to go there and write with my little boy, Aaron.
It was a really cool getaway. But it took two and a half hours to drive there from Albany. And I was driving from Albany, New York at 2:00 in the morning, burnt from all the travel. Cop stopped me for doing 62 on a four lane road when there was no one else in sight. Then the guy gave me a ticket. I was doing 62.
And he said, 'We give tickets around here for over-60.' and I said, 'I can't drive 55.'
I grabbed a paper and a pen, and I swear the guy was writing the ticket and I was writing the lyrics.
I got to Lake Placid, I had a guitar set-up there. And I wrote that song there on the spot. Burnt."
—Sammy Hagar, 1994
