Re: I over heard a rumour about the disease Jason Becker has
Yeah, Jason has ALS, also known as "Lou Gehrigs disease". It's pretty much a progressive disease, which makes you loose control of your body slowly. It's a real bugger that a young guy like Jason Becker got hit with this disease.
The last thing he recorded, as far as I know, are some solo's on DLR album "A little ain't enough". He arranged a lot of the songs though. I remember that he was using a computer at that time, and that playing had become difficult for him.
I don't know if he's still alive.
Hail Jason Becker! Master in a league of his own!
