His book “Ghost Rider” tells of a long, cross-continental motorcycle trip he took after the tragic deaths of his wife and daughter while his band mates waited patiently for him to heal.  GHOST RIDER

It just goes to show that while songs about the open road aren’t limited to Willie and Skynyrd – and sometimes have some pretty interesting stories behind them.
