Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet Movie Premiere Set

(Gibson) The world premiere of the film Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet, about the life of guitarist Jason Becker, will take place on March 3 in San Jose, California. The film will include interviews with Becker, his family and friends, and the various musicians he has worked with.

Becker was a brilliantly talented guitarist with the world at his feet when he joined David Lee Roth's band for the Bob Rock-produced A Little Ain't Enough album in 1989. But while preparing for the ensuing tour, Becker began to notice sluggishness in his left leg. This led to a diagnosis of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS, or "Lou Gehrig's Disease") and by 1996 Becker had lost the ability to speak. Today he is unable to move his body at all, yet Becker continues to communicate and compose via eye movements correlating to a grid system.

The Jason Becker's Not Dead Yet festival in March 2011 featured Joe Satriani, Steve Lukather, Richie Kotzen, the Kehoe Nation, Flametal and more, with all proceeds going towards medical supplies for Jason and a trust fund for his future security. more on this story
