Anywhere You Wanna Go

Happy birthday, Jim Peterik.  He was a performer and songwriter who wrote the hit "Vehicle" for his band The Ides Of March.  It's got to be one of the most rousing songs ever.

He was still a teenager when he wrote it.  It was about a girlfriend he'd lost.  She still asked him to give her rides, and he got tired of just being her vehicle.  The great thing is they ended up together.

Peterik "was" a performer? The original line up of Ides of March are still at it, coming up on 50 years playing together.
