Product Overview

In this vintage video series, the tragic and ultimately heroic story of one of the most awe-inspiring and innovative metal guitar heroes of the eighties Jason Becker is told. As co-member of Cacophony, with Marty Friedman, Becker defined the liquid-smooth super-complex playing style that characterized the Los Angeles guitarists of the decade.

After being diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's Disease in the early nineties, Becker has continued to play and compose. These videos feature rare and archived footage of both Cacophony and Jason's many solo performances.

Furthermore, this series includes Becker's guitar clinic at the Atlanta Institute of Music, giving a poignant insight into this legendary figure.
