Jason Becker


The Story
Shred/neo-classical guitarist Jason Becker, stricken with Lou Gehrig's disease at age 20, released his CD "Perspective" at age 25. Using a MIDI-based studio including a keyboard, Macintosh, sequencing software and an analog recording system, Becker has created his own system for making music via computer. "As my guitar playing dwindled, something else in my music got better," stated Becker. "Many times in music, if you are given limitations, it expands the creativity." "Perspective" features an impressive array of guest performers on the record including Michael Lee Firkins, Matt and Gregg Bissonette, Steve Hunter and Journey's Steve Perry.
