Jason Becker interview in new Guitar World

He's the victim of "Ask A Guitar Hero". He seems to be in good spirits, saying that he would give 10 inches of his penis (but only 10 inches) for the ability to play guitar again. It amazing that he can still manage to make jokes and not jsut sit around depressed, it's probably why he is still alive.

Re: Jason Becker interview in new Guitar World

He really is an inspiration in the grand sceme of things isn't he!
Like you said, it's amazing that the guy can keep his spirits up and still be laughing and joking.

The guy is an absolute inspiration, and he kinda puts everything into perspective when you think of what he's been through.

Great guy, and I will have to pick this issue up when I see it.
What month is the issue? February?

Re: Jason Becker interview in new Guitar World

Do you think they'd cast Ralph Macchio to play Jason?

Re: Jason Becker interview in new Guitar World

"Jason and his friend, actor Matt Schulze are planning a movie about his life, tentatively titled Mr. Tambourine Man. According to Jason's official website, Fender and Charvel are going to make guitars for the movie and are planning to release a number of them to the public."

This is what I have found about it, but no dates or confirmation if its happening as of yet.

Re: Jason Becker interview in new Guitar World

Cool, thanks for the info. I'm looking forward to seeing his signature from Peavey. I just read that Greg Howe is having a custom guitar made by them.

Regards

André
