Buy RISE and Support Jason Becker

For every RISE album sold (CD /digital), I will donate 1 USD to Jason Becker. And from all streaming royalties I donate 10%. 

Jason is suffering from ALS since 1990 and needs continuous financial support to pay for his medical bills. Jason has been a huge inspiration to me since I first heard the Perpetual Burn album in 1987. Find out more about Jason Becker on the Jason Becker Charity page
