A guitar prodigy, Jason Becker burst onto the music scene at the tender age of 13, garnering notice from major industry players. In 1991, at age 19, Jason was hired as the lead guitarist in David Lee Roth’s band, the most coveted guitar gig at the time, but he never made it on tour. Doctors diagnosed him with Lou Gehrig’s disease and said he would never make music again, let alone live to see his 25th birthday. Twenty-two years later, without the ability to move or to speak, Jason is alive and making music with his eyes.
