Legendary guitarist Jason Becker is unfortunately experiencing a scary bout with shortness of breath and rapid heart rate. Becker, who has been living with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) for over 30 years years, is said to be in contact with his doctors about the situation by his mother Pat Becker.
"Jason has requested prayers from all you wonderful folks out there. He can feel your prayers, and is experiencing shortness-of-breath and a rapid heart rate which is pretty scary stuff.
"He has not been able to communicate his gratitude and love for all the recent donations and support, but he is so grateful to you all and hopes to get back to a level of energy that makes it possible to let you all know, personally, how much he appreciates you."
"We are in constant contact with his doctors and will keep you posted.
"Thank you all."
We wish Becker all the best at this time. In the meanwhile, Dragonforce guitarist Herman Li is hosting a benefit for Becker on his Twitch channel throughout both last month and this month. It features pretty much every single metal guitarist.
