The year is 1989, and 19-year old Jason Becker from Richmond, California has just been offered the biggest rock guitar job on the planet. He's on the cover of every guitar magazine and is being hailed by critics as a genius and the next greatest rock guitarist in the world. Jason's childhood dream of making and performing music has come true. One week from now, during an examination of his leg, Jason's dream will turn into a nightmare when he is diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's Disease and given just 3-5 years to live. 23 years later, without the ability to move or to speak, Jason is alive and making music with his eyes.

I am also incredibly honored to have my name appear in the credits ( I made a small contribution).
Today I have learned many things. I have known about Jason for 22 years and he still inspires me in many ways. Thank you Jason and your wonderful parents and all the people who made it happen for this really meaningful film. This is to me a lot more than an inspiring dvd.
Dont even think twice, buy this dvd and even buy a few copies to give away. It will teach you a lot, and if you, like Jason and me, are a musician or an artist, it's absolutely essential viewing. It will motivate you to work harder, and to look at your own problems with more perspective. You will learn to be more grateful about what you have, even if you think, like me, that you don't have much to start with. I find hard sometimes even to smile when I am around people, and often I don't feel at all good about life in general. But in this film I have seen Jason smiling and even telling funny jokes. If he can do this, I most definitely have to make a much bigger effort. I will always remember what I have seen in this film. The man still inspires me today as he did 22 years ago when I was starting to learn play guitar and heard the magical introduction of 'Altitudes'.
I kept up with the really good players,- rockers, jazz, country, blues, ect...
I heard about 'this new guy' years ago, then didn't hear anything else until recently.
I now have another guitar hero, and that was just the way he played before he got sick.
I also have another hero in a human being.
God bless, and thank you Jason.
