This song was inspired by Rush drummer Neil Peart's book Ghost Rider: Travels on the Healing Road
. Godsmack lead singer Sully Erna used to be a drummer and is a huge fan of Peart. The book is about a road trip Peart took across the US on his motorcycle, which helped him deal with the tragic death of both his daughter and wife. Erna also loves motorcycles and was very moved by the book. For more, check out the Songfacts on "Ghost Rider
