    Hi. This is my first post here. I didn't see this posted yet so I apologize if this is a duplicate. I heard this on the radio about 40 min. ago here in Phoenix, then went to the PIR site to see if I could find any info.....

    Here's the link to PIR and I cut & pasted the article below:

I know it will be a thrill for the drivers and fans to have Eddie at Phoenix International Raceway for the NASCAR weekend."

    "I am honored on behalf of EVH Brand guitars, amps and musical products to be invited to such an exciting and fun event. I feel privileged to be working with such amazing organizations like Phoenix International Raceway, their NASCAR event and Fender." said Van Halen.



    "Rock and roll, fast cars and guitars, I can't think of a better combination. Fender is proud to partner with our friends, Eddie Van Halen and PIR, for this great occasion." said Matt Janopaul, President & COO of Fender Musical Instruments Corp.



    With countless number one hits, Van Halen is known for hit albums including "1984" and "5150" which combined with others, have sold more than 75 million copies worldwide.

    Unless he comes with new music, I couldn't care less.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    "20 minutes (late to work)? Shit. Last year I woke up three weeks too late.
    My advice is to go for the alien abduction story. Look bemused, dishevelled and on the verge of tears as you recount your story of intrusive and degrading medical tests.
    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.
    Alternatively just walk in and inform everyone that alcoholism is indeed a disease and that they should be less judgemental and perhaps a little more supportive."
