"I was asked to do a cameo for 'Two and a Half Men'. I typically shy away from these requests as I am not an actor, but Charlie Sheen and I are friends and since it was a scene with him, I agreed.

He explained that the hand problems first popped up during VAN HALEN's last tour, saying, "During the last leg of our tour, I started developing pain in my thumb and my pinky. I didn't think much of it at the time. It got progressively worse to the point that about three months ago I wasn't able to play at all. My pinky and my thumb were totally locked up and felt like there was something broken."
