Today I watched a film/documentary about a very gifted guitar player and composer named Jason Becker.
- 'Not Dead Yet'
He was born on 22nd July 1969 which means his birthday is one day after mine which is very cool!
At age 19 he was diagnosed with ALS ( amyotrophic lateral sclerosis/ Lou Gehrig's disease ) which to date is incurable.
- Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
Sadly his promising career as a super guitarist was cut short.
This year of 2013 Jason is turning 44 and composes music still.
His attitude to life is mindblowing and he is an inspiration second to none I think!
