Becker’s Not Dead Yet
Proceeds from the evening go towards medical supplies for Jason as well as a trust fund to provide for his future security.
Jason Becker, a onetime guitar prodigy first known as part of the
metal duo Cacophony, was diagnosed with ALS (aka Lou Gehrig’s Disease)
at age 20, shortly after joining David Lee Roth’s band. Although the
disease robbed him of his ability to play guitar – and eventually left
him both paralyzed and unable to speak – Becker continues to compose
music with the help of computers, collaborators, and a system of
communication using eye movements that was devised by his father Gary.
