Green Day's Mike Dirnt is a life long Fender fan

Date: 2012-07-03



"Fender musical instruments have shaped my life well beyond imagination. When I was a little kid I listened to the radio like it was my best friend. I hung on every musical note and still remember every catchy guitar line or riff I have ever heard. That was my escape, and still is. But it wasn’t until years later that I connected the bands and songs I loved to a company named Fender. I actually knew what a Stratocaster looked like before I knew who made it. It’s the guitar that Hendrix played… and so on. I’ve always felt like music was the emotional outlet that you can’t get from anything else. For me, this intangible force was life-shaping and, dare I say, larger than life itself. If you’re reading this and you’re under 65 years old, Fender has been working hard throughout your lifetime to make our world a better, more musical place. Working closely with many of the people at Fender for years has been great. Fender is like a company of skilled musical ‘superfans’, who all want to make the biggest and best musical instruments of the past, present and future all at once. The hallways at Fender headquarters are filled with musicians, technicians and history. I’m a bit older now, but will forever be a kid – and although I don’t believe in Santa Claus anymore, I do believe that if he does exist, his workshop looks something like Fender’s." Mike Dirnt
