John Mayer Responds to Jason Becker's Ice Bucket Challenge
August 25, 2014
John Mayer was one of three people nominated to take the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS by Mr. Jason Becker himself. The other two, Edward Van Halen and Jason's old bandmate David Lee Roth, have yet to respond. Mayer not only accepted the challenge, he played the Becker composition "Air" before doing so. A great performance by a great player for a great cause.
"I was nominated for the ice bucket challenge by Jason Becker, a phenomenal musician who has ALS," says Mayer. "Though he can no longer play guitar because of the disease, he still continues to compose beautiful music. I thought I'd play along with one of Jason’s old guitar recordings before I went for the bucket. For more info on Jason check out his site http://www.jasonbecker.com
