Here is a special eBay auction for my dear friend Jason Becker, thanks to the generosity of the incredibly talented and gifted guitarist, Alex Skolnick (Alex Skolnick Trio/Testament).

The auction will run for 1 week – please pass the message along!

Jason and I thank you both so very much, Alex!!!

eBay Auction for Jason Becker

I will say that although I usually avoid wearing tour merchandise to avoid drawing attention to myself in public, that tour jacket is one I did occasionally wear.

Jason Becker has long been an incredible inspiration for all, musicians and non-musicians alike. The documentary about him, Not Dead Yet, is a must see that fully captures his sense of class, deep thinking and even humor in the face of challenges unimaginable to the rest of us. It is an honor to contribute to the Jason Becker auction. – Alex Skolnick (Alex Skolnick Trio/Testament)

Guitar World, June 2013 issue

On April 22nd in Corpus Christi, Texas, I got the very sad news of my father’s passing right before we were about to perform. I will be flying home to be with my family tonight and will rejoin the Soilwork  tour in Richmond, VA on the 29th.  Thank you all for  your support and warm thoughts.

My dad meant the world to me and this is a very difficult time for both me and my family…

- Jeff

Last night after our show in St. Louis, our tour van was broken into as we were grabbing a bite to eat before our drive to Dallas. We were parked in a well-lit area in front of the restaurant. In the ten to fifteen minutes that it took for us to order our food and eat, all of our personal items such as laptops, cameras, musical equipment, cell phones, passports and money were stolen. We came outside to find the lock on the driver side door popped out of the van, and promptly called the police. A report has been filed and the van was fingerprinted, but the leads don’t seem promising. The police stated that this is apparently a common occurrence in the area. We are all in disbelief, but are very fortunate for everyone to be okay.

After discussing the situation as a group, we would like to try to continue on with this tour, but to be able to do this, we will need your help. We have all taken a huge hit financially, and we cannot continue on without some sort of support. We have set up a paypal account for any amount of donations to assist us for the duration of the tour.


Any and all support will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Jeff Loomis Band and crew

Got some fun shots of the guys backstage, but wasn’t aggressive about getting live ones (my camera is kinda lame). If I can salvage a few, I will add them to the gallery later. This is what I have for now. Enjoy!
