There's more but...I don't have the photos of them right now. I'll see if I could get my buddy Bronson to email them to me...That custom Carvin artwork is painted by Jason's father.

Was that Jason's mom in that 1 pic?

Which guitar do you like best? I know you said earlier that they've got dust on them, strings are kind of coroded, etc.

The Paradise numbers is very awesome. The only guitar I didn't play was the original numbers...

And yes, I think that's his mom. I get confused, because his mom and aunt look so much alike it's hard for me to tell them apart.

I have a friend I met at MI that donated a substantial amount of money to Jason (for the documentary). We went to meet him the first time, and then he deemed us cool enough and invited us back for his birthday party. Michael Lee Firkins, the original japanese tour lineup of Cacophony (minus Marty) were there, Mike Varney was there, and a couple of other people. I was a little too shy to talk to all of them, but they talked to us for a while. All really awesome dudes.

I would never have been able to go if I didn't enroll at MI at the exact time that I did. Weird how the world works...me and my girlfriend used to talk about meeting Jason when we were 17...and it happened. Randomly.

That would be so awesome to have one of Jason's guitars!

It makes me feel sick when I think about what could have been... I can't imagine how hard it must have been for him to accept not only would he become a prisoner in his own body, but he would never again be able to play guitar.

He was one of the greatest ever no doubt..

Sorry to be a downer guys. It's just the type of thing that allows you to see just how lucky you are to be healthy. & be reminded of what we all take for granted... I only wish I had even less than half the natural talent and personal strength as that man.
