The Books On The Shelf – Jason Crigler

I first heard Jason Crigler’s name while I was watching a PBS documentary.  This guy’s life story is absolutely amazing and very influential.  He was an extremely sought-after guitarist and musician when one night in 2004, he suffered a major brain injury.  He lost his ability to speak, move and other things we take for granted, but he never gave up.  The most remarkable thing to me was that even during this horrible accident, he regained his ability to play guitar just as if nothing had happened. Eventually he learned to walk and talk and made an unbelievable recovery against all odds. For more info on Jason Crigler’s amazing story, go to his Website or this article on the PBS Website and watch the video.  It shows some of the recovery process that Crigler went through and is quite interesting.  “The Books On The Shelf” is a song that Crigler wrote about his injury and his recovery. What a great musician. Enjoy his music today!
