Joe will be playin Slim's in San Francisco on Sat.3/26/11 at "Jason Becker's Not Dead Yet Festival" with many more. Maybe Sammy will show up.
Joe Satriani headlines a guitar-heavy bill that also includes Richie Kotzen, Steve Lukather, the Kehoe Nation, Flametal and many more, reminding the world that Jason Becker's Not Dead Yet.
Proceeds from the evening go towards medical supplies for Jason as well as a trust fund to provide for his future security.
Jason Becker, a onetime guitar prodigy first known as part of the metal duo Cacophony, was diagnosed with ALS (aka Lou Gehrig's Disease) at age 20, shortly after joining David Lee Roth's band. Although the disease robbed him of his ability to play guitar - and eventually left him both paralyzed and unable to speak - Becker continues to compose music with the help of computers, collaborators, and a system of communication using eye movements that was devised by his father Gary.
