Jason Becker confirmed the release of Triumphant Hearts, an album featuring dozens of guest stars including Neal Schon, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Paul Gilbert, Gus G and Trevor Rabin. It will be released on Dec. 7.
Becker, a former David Lee Roth guitarist who was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease in 1990, lost the ability to move over the following years. He communicates using his eyes and continues to create music by computer, as detailed in the 2012 documentary Not Dead Yet. “I have Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis,” he once said. “It has crippled my body and speech, but not my mind.”
