The HeyUGuys Interview: Jason Becker

7 December 2012 7:00 AM, PST | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Jason Becker inspires something akin to awe in his army of fans. So much so that one, producer/director Jesse Vile, aspired for fifteen years to make a film about him. And, when the time came, several hundred more came forward with the cash to make it happen.

Their devotion could be attributed to any one of a number of reasons. Perhaps they were fans of the virtuoso shred guitarist from his days touring with Cacophony – perhaps they saw Jason and a pre-Megadeth Marty Friedman jamming and fell under their spell. Maybe they read the cover stories that screamed from the metal mags when, in 1989, Jason was made lead guitarist of David Lee Roth’s new band. He was 19-years-old at the time.

Or are they fans of the haunting music he is composing and producing now – 22 years after Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Als) devastated his career, paralysed and sentenced him »
