Many of you may remember guitar phenom Jason Becker from his time in David Lee Roth’s solo band, recording on the A Little Ain’t Enough album. Maybe you remember him from his early days in Cacophony. Maybe you remember him as being one of the hottest young guitarists of the late ’80s/early ’90s.
What you may not know is that Jason was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease) during his tenure with DLR and he has lived a productive life since the disease started to take hold. According to Jason, he has actually improved over the last few years. Amazing!
The Metal Sludge website has an interview with Jason in it’s archives, it’s very inspiring. Jason’s website and life story is an absolute tribute to the undying human spirit. Aside from being a brilliant musician, he is a brilliant human being.
