Jason Eli Becker (born July 22, 1969) is an American heavy metal guitarist and composer. At the age of 16, he became part of Cacophony with his friend Marty Friedman. They released the albums Metal Symphony in 1987 and Go Off! in 1988. Cacophony broke up in 1989 and Becker began doing solo work, having released his first album Perpetual Burn in 1988. He later joined David Lee Roth's band and recorded one album with him, A Little Ain't Enough.

  • Becker was born and raised in Richmond, California, by his parents, Gary and Patricia (Heffley) Becker.
  • Becker started out playing alongside Marty Friedman in Cacophony. Together, they put out an album, and toured Japan and the U.S. While they never went mainstream in the U.S., Europeans embraced their music and they sold out almost everywhere they went.
  • In 1989 Becker began to pursue a solo career, having released his first solo album titled 'Perpetual Burn' in 1988.
  • At the age of 20, he joined David Lee Roth's band to work on Roth's album A Little Ain't Enough, replacing Steve Vai, who had joined Whitesnake. In 1990 Becker won the coveted Best New Guitarist award from Guitar Magazine
  • While preparing for the album, Becker began to feel what he called a "lazy limp" in his left leg. He was soon diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
  • His ALS gradually robbed him of his ability to play guitar, to walk, and eventually his ability to speak. He now communicates with his eyes via a system developed by his father. He remains mentally sharp and, with the aid of a computer, continues composing.
"One night I dreamed I was running. When I woke up I forgot I had a limp, so I walked totally normal until I remembered, 'oh, yeah, I have a limp'. Then I immediately stumbled. That showed me that if you have control over your mind, you can do anything."
Jason Becker
