Jason Becker is an amazing guitarist/composer and a great human being. Unfortunately his guitar playing was cut short when he was diagnosed with ALS or Lou Gherig's Disease while touring with David Lee Roth.
He's amazingly still composing, but continues to fight ALS even after the doctors gave him 3-5 years to live back in the late 80's. This Documentary Video will shed some light into Jasons Life, Career and the effects of ALS. It's a must see!
The expenses of ALS are huge. Just staying alive is expensive. If you know a family with a disease like this, please help them. If not, and this story touches you, the address is:
