    Default Ex-DAVID LEE ROTH Guitarist JASON BECKER Needs Your Help

    I don't tend to spam but this is a worthy cause IMO.


    Ex-DAVID LEE ROTH Guitarist JASON BECKER Needs Your Help
    Aug. 27, 2006

    Guitarist Jason Becker's official web site http://www.jasonbecker.com/ is offering t-shirts for a limited time only, priced at $15 (including shipping). All proceeds go straight to Jason, who is suffering from with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS, a.k.a. Lou Gehrig's Disease).

    When doctors diagnosed Becker with ALS in 1989 — one week after he joined David Lee Roth's band as Steve Vai's replacement — they gave him approximately five years to live. That was 17 years ago. Though Becker was able to complete Roth's album ("A Little Ain't Enough"), in the ensuing years the guitarist would be robbed of his mobility, forcing him to communicate through an "alphabet board" his father invented. The one-time promising young gun now chooses each letter of his speech via eye movements.

    This is a terrible disease - my band will be playing a large multi band event here in San Antonio on September 23rd to raise money for ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). I hope everyone will at least donate some of their time to help fight any disease (cancer, diabetes, etc...) as you help others and may be helping yourself in the future because you never know...
