    because the bassist from in flames showed you the light on blabbermouth.

    this video should be mandatory, but not because he said so.

    Hmm, don't know about the blabbermouth business, but Jason Becker is definitely an inspiriational dude, and was an amazing guitarist.

    :worship: :worship:


    This guy makes you realise that our own petty problems arent anything compared to what he's been through. And yet he still manages to be a good person through it all and hasnt become bitter from his experiences. What a man.

    i actually noticed this guy on myspace, not blabbermouth, but i think what the bassist from inflames said was excatly right. the fact that this guy can still smile is incredible and shows real spirit

    Becker was amazing. I read a good interview with Metal Sludge years ago...
    here it is: http://www.metalsludge.tv/home/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=493&Itemid=37

    I just looked on Wikipedia and this which is interesting:
    Jason and his friend, actor Matt Schulze are planning a movie about his life, tentatively titled Mr. Tambourine Man. According to Jason's official website, Fender and Charvel are going to make guitars for the movie and are planning to release a number of them to the public.
