Does Jake have a disease making him Blind?

Postby Alkeys » Mon Jan 30, 2006 1:23 pm

Ok- this is the first I ever heard of this.

If you look up Jake E. Lee on Wikipedia, it states:

"Jake has suffered some disabling illnesses, and is now considered legally blind. He has not let that prevent him from playing or recording."

Do you guys know anything about that? First time I heard anything about that- is it true? If it is true, damn that sucks.

He didnt mention anything about it in the Retraced interviews so hopefully it isnt true. But one thing we have to remember is that Jake is almost 50 years old and he is also human. One of the saddest things about life is that nothing lasts forever :cry:

I sincerely hope there's no vision problems with Jake E. Lee's sight: there's always rumours about his Health and I'm not one to fall into such traps. Jake E. Lee has often times been "targeted" at/I guess through misleading rumor theads on other 'Sites concerning his Music Career, Health etc.,. and it leads to misinformation & at times being down right cruel toward him/Jake E. Lee. These harmful rumor theads which by the way are all very "untrue/false" were bought to our attention(s) before and have been powerfully/disgreetly answered responded to along while back by the Webmaster Jefnel1 of this fine unique Professional Musician Jake E. Lee Website. So once again, don't fall into rumours for many times there quite harmful & misleading.

PS - We "all" get older that's Life and we "all" continue to grow, learn & have "many" things to share/offer give to Society no matter the age with the gifts God Blessed (whom is the Oldest/the Alpha & Omega of us all!) each of us with. Peace and many respects!

Not calling you a liar or anything dude but that doesnt look like Jake.e.lee at all. I seriously doubt that Jake would play with some low rate Ozzy tribute band. But thanx for the pics and once again im not calling you a liar but that is not Jake.

hard driver-

How can you say your not calling him a liar, and in the same sentence say its not him? Pick a side bro, tha fence is gettng heavy,lol.

Could be him, might not be, who knows.If he was a special guest, he probably borrowed the guitar from the band he was jamming with.

Jake has endorsments on the way, some very cool news regarding guitars and some other things in the works from what i've heard.You dont get endorsements for sitting at home doing nothing.Could it be that he was getting his feet wet in a stress free enviornment? Cover band, no one announces him performing that night, ect..... Makes sense to me.

I cant tell, could just be a guy that looks like him wearing a "speak of the devil " era jake stage clothes.

Jake, clear the air
