EDDIE VAN HALEN EMERGES FROM REHAB TO GO CAR RACING:
Eddie Van Halen will be guest of honor at a car racing event this coming weekend. Yes, he is out of rehab. For the conspiracy theorists out there that don't believe Ed did rehab, I believe stays of around 30 days is the normal length of rehab stints these days.
From the press release:
"Phoenix International Raceway President Bryan R. Sperber has announced that rock superstar Eddie Van Halen will serve as an Honorary Race Official for the Subway Fresh Fit 500 Nascar Nextel Cup Series race at PIR on Saturday, April 21. As an Honorary Race Official, Van Halen will be part of pre-race activities and will join Sperber on the pre-race stage greeting drivers as they are introduced prior to the start of the race.
In addition to his duties as an Honorary Race Official, Van Halen will help to unveil a limited edition Fender Stratocaster Guitar as well as a limited edition EVH brand Frankenstein replica guitar at PIR on Friday, April 20. The Fender guitar, with its unique designs, will be presented to the winner of the SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500 on Saturday, April 21. The one-of-a-kind PIR Fender Stratocaster Guitar was built by Chris Fleming, Senior Master Builder, in Fender's Custom Shop."
