Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet

Jesse Vile 2012

Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet is the extraordinary story of guitar prodigy Jason Becker and his fight with the degenerative disease ALS. The film charts the life of Jason Becker – from his early years learning guitar, to wowing fellow students with his prowess at the talent show, to being chosen as guitarist in David Lee Roth’s band, to the diagnosis, and to where he is now, twenty years later, still making music, still very much alive. With the help of his devoted family and an army of friends, Jason now communicates and makes music using his eyes to guide a cursor and create in his mind (and on computer) the music he used to make on his guitar.
