Former Megadeth guitarist Chris Broderick has shared footage of himself performing Jason Becker’s “Perpetual Burn” on Becker’s white 22-fret Hurricane guitar. You can check that out below. Broderick commented:
“I got the chance to play Jason Becker ‘s original white Hurricane guitar that was seen on the cover of Cacophony’s “Speed Metal Symphony” and used to record Perpetual Burn and had to attempt a little excerpt from Perpetual Burn to honor Jason. This one-of-a-kind original shred history guitar is going up for auction to pay for Jason’s lifetime of ALS medical expenses, so myself and many other musicians are playing it to raise awareness. This horrific disease could happen to any of us.
