Artist Biography
Jason Becker is an American hard rock guitarist who formed the band Cacophony in the late '80s with fellow guitarist Marty Friedman and recorded two albums with it, Speed Metal Symphony (1987) and Go Off! (1988). He made the instrumental solo album Perpetual Burn in 1988. In 1989, he left Cacophony and was hired by David Lee Roth to replace Steve Vai in his backup band, appearing on the album A Little Ain't Enough (1991). Shortly after he joined Roth's band, however, he was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), better known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, a rare degenerative illness that causes paralysis. Nevertheless, he succeeded in completing a second solo album, Perspective, released on his own label in 1996. Raspberry Jams, an album of demos, followed in 1999, and in 2001, through the intercession of Eddie Van Halen, Perspective was given major-label release on Warner Bros. Records. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi


Sam Bell: The night my car decided to set on fire

Litrally driving back from a gig, stopped a few times to get fuel and food, going well below the speed limit, no sign of anything, then suddenly a horrid burning smell, my girlfriend needed a slash, and i thought it would be best to pull over, got out the car, popped the bonnet, flames everywhere, so we just ran and got the fire service out, they sent 3 fire trucks, 2 police cars, 2 medic cars and an ambulance. We are ok, and are lucky to have got away with it, if i hadnt pulled over it might have been a diffrent story. full photo gallery

The 8 survived, no damage apart from a few minor scorches, stayed perfectly in tune

James Williams: X Opus debut release on Magna Carta

Sure to be a big hit with fans of progressive metal, Dream Theater, Queensryche.

The Epiphany, the debut CD from the symphonic metal band X Opus , is a celestial blend of enigmatic lyrical threads and layered neoclassical metal.

Tracks such as “Terrified”, “Forsaken” “On Top of the World”, “Pharaohs of Lies” and “In the Heavens” are haunting yet radiant musical vignettes, imbued with the power of spiritual transformation.

While traces of Hendrix, Symphony X and J.S. Bach can be detected throughout the 10-track CD, X Opus has shaped a dense musical landscape pockmarked by major plateaus and minor gullies. The combination of doomy chord changes, bombastic compositional grandness, the flavor of Middle Eastern scales, and lyrical themes, based on the redemptive nature of faith, is enough to send chills up and down your spine.

“You always hear about the healing powers of music,” says guitarist, multi-instrumentalist and X Opus leader James Williams. “The Epiphany CD really sums up many of the trials and tribulations of my life and even my own belief system. Really, it’s the record I’ve waited my life to make.”

Williams composed the music and played and/or programmed all of the instruments heard on The Epiphany. Dallas-Fort Worth area singers Brian Dixon and David Crocker provide the operatic and classic metal vibrato. (Think Halford, Dio, Tate and LaBrie.)

It’s no accident that the extreme emotional component of this music has moved so many who’ve heard it. The Epiphany is more than just good headbanging entertainment -- it’s a senses-stimulating symphonic metal experience for the ages.

“The Epiphany CD took about two years to finish,” boasts Williams. “I wrote 25 compositions for the CD and I picked the one that I thought were the most appropriate thematically. I’m really very proud of this entire collection of tunes.”
