    I just wanted to tell you that I posted an interview with ex-David Lee Roth and Cacophony guitar player Jason Becker at http://www.RockReunion.com.
    As you may know, he suffers from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.
    Please support Jason and his music!

    Having just read the interview he did with Grant he seems like a real cool guy.

    He knows whats going on with Van Halen.

    He did a great job of "not answering" the Dave being back question, but when he said that he talked to Eddie last week, that got me thinking.

    I don't know if his condition prevents him from playing live, But if he can, what do you think of him opening up for VH?
    You know, play about 30 minutes?

    Thanks for the info Goo.
    I don't know much about him or his disease.
    I feel real bad for him.

    It kind of gives you new appreciation for your life and being healthy, doesn't it?

    Certainly does bro. You don't know how good you got it till you read a story like his.

    I remember reading a little bout it some time back, he used to get a 'pins and needles' type feeling in his arms sometimes when he started working on ALAE with Roth, I think it was diagnosed part way through the recording of that album, and hes deteriorated ever since.

    He claims not to , and thats probably the case - he hasnt seen Roth since ALAE, and hasnt seen eddie for about 2-3 years I belive.

    That really sucks that Jason hasn't seen Dave since they parted. Dave says in his book that he cried when Jason was hit by this disease, so you'd think that Dave would stay in touch.

    I don't know, but I imagine that Eddie called Jason to congratulate him on the often delayed re-release of Perspectives. That, or an apology about the track of Jason's that he recorded not being on the album.

    Jason's mother sent me his answers to my questions in a Microsoft Word file. At the top of the file she dated it Feb 12, 2001.
    So "last week" really means last week!

    Thanks Grant.

    So I bet that Jason does know what is going on inside 5150.

    On a serious side Grant, if you talk to Jason again, please tell him that all of us here at VHLinks wish him the best. and to stay strong.

    sorry Brett & all for speaking for you, but I think that you all feel the same.
