(This clip was filmed at a soundcheck in a bar the night before Jude performed the song at the sold-out "Not Dead Yet" Jason Becker benefit concert at Slim's, San Francisco, March 2011, at which Becker was in attendance.)

From Wikipedia: A Little Ain't Enough is the third full-length album by David Lee Roth (of Van Halen), released in 1991. It was certified gold on April 11, 1991. Produced by Bob Rock, the album featured the lead guitar work of Jason Becker, a then up-and-coming guitarist who was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, aka Lou Gehrig's Disease) a week after joining the band. He managed to finish recording the album, but was unable to tour in support of the album, as his condition left him with little strength in his hands.
