(Classic Rock) It was revealed in June that Sammy Hagar isn't the only Van Halen alum who can't drive 55 as Eddie recalled in an interview how a police captain cancelled a speeding ticket - just because he was Eddie Van Halen. The guitarist, a keen racer and owner of a Lambourghini, a Porsche, two high-performance Audis and other vehicles, was stopped after driving at 95mph in a 65mph zone.

Van Halen tells CarAndDriver.com: "Audi contacted me to test-drive the V-10 on the track. You know, just go crazy. So my wife Janie and I drove up in her Mercedez-Benz ML63 AMG. It's a long drive and we're doing abuot 90, 95 in a 65.

"I get pulled over and the guy writes me up. I'm going, 'The last thing I need is a speeding ticket for that much over the limit.'" He later received a letter from his business office: "The patrol guy who gave me the ticket, his captain voided it. He said, 'You don't give Eddie Van Halen a ticket.' And I had a letter to prove it." Read more here.
