Well it is quite well established that Rock and Roll saves lives.
This last Saturday, it saved me a bunch of money and a possible court appearance.

So, I am driving home from Woodstock, NY after my guitar lessons.
I have "Whole lotta love" blasting in my stereo and I had no idea that the speed limit was 45.
I was at 61 ...

Soon, I get pulled over, the cop comes over and is like, "Did you have any idea how fast you were going."
I am like, "I am sorry office, I got so caught up in this song that I didn't notice".
And I took the CD case and pointed to track 1.

He takes a look and goes, "Zeppelin, damn good band! Well slow down, I have seen too many accidents on this road."
and lets me go ... :) :)

Latest addition: Cover of "Don't Panic" by Coldplay

I got pulled over for loud music by some stupid cops on a training exercise, got a ticket for noise pollution.$250. Went to court and the D.A asked me what I was listing to, when I said "David Bowie" he started to laugh and dropped the ticket from $250 to $20.

yes, i do listen to what i like and always will.

but yeah, sometimes, that pang of guilt pops up when i hear her on the radio and don't change the channel, especially when other people are in the car.

A couple months back, I got pulled over while listening to "Radar Love". :lol:

After he gave me a warning, I told him the song was on when he pulled me over and we both got a good laugh over it.

Quite correct - "Substitute" is a Who song 8)

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.
Did you know that the word "gullible" is not in any dictionary?

It depends on the state. Here in KY it is 65mph max on the interstate. I have been in some states where it is 75mph.

Fines vary a lot state to state. It usually depends on how much you exceeded the speed limit. The most I have ever paid is $175 for 20 over the limit. (it was closer to 30 but the officer reduced it)

Interview guy: What is the source of your feedback?
Neil Young: Volume.

In Tennessee, 20 MPH or more over the limit is automatically presumed to be reckless driving. That's a whole lot worse than a speeding charge.
