Peterik who co-wrote the legendary Rocky theme song says the motivational ditty has gotten him out of traffic tickets.
He has a habit of writing songs while driving with a notebook, pen, and tape recorder on his lap and as a result, has been pulled over for slightly erratic cruising.
Says Peterik: When I get a song idea on the road, Im hell on wheels!
He recalls the time a police officer pulled him over in the middle of a musical brainstorm because he thought Peterik was driving drunk.
Peterik name-dropped his involvement with Eye Of The Tiger and the only thing the cop made him sign was an autograph.
He gushes, That song has truly been a blessing for me.
Peterik is now a jazz musician and has an album called Lifeforce.
