Various Artists - Warmth In The Wilderness (Tribute To Jason Becker)

Jason Becker, former guitarist of CACOPHONY (together with Marty Friedman) and others, suffers from the disease Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, an incurable nerve-disorder. Now Lion Music has created a tribute of a different art, one of which all royalties and profits will be completely donated to Jason and his family. All musicians have donated their work and recordings for free, just like Eric Philippe has done with his great artwork.

Musically these two CDs feature an impressive bunch of musicians (above all guitarists, of course), which have taken on the Becker-songs, among them so well-sounding names like Chris Poland, Steve Morse, Mark Boals, Jeff Pilson, Marty Friedman or Paul Gilbert, to name but a few. That it all resulted in good versions is almost self-evident, but not the point.

The reason for this tribute is what counts and which really demands a deep bow of each fan for the participants, so support this project, because it's absolutely worth it!
