Quote:
Canadian rock and jazz musician Jeff Healey died Sunday in a Toronto hospital after a battle with cancer, his publicist said.

He was 41.

Healey's battle with cancer began at age one when he lost his sight due to Retinoblastoma, a rare form of retinal cancer.

Due to his blindness, Healey taught himself to play guitar by laying the instrument across his lap.

His unique playing style, combined with his blues-oriented vocals, earned him a reputation as a teenage musical prodigy. He shared stages with George Harrison, B.B. King and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

But Healey's true love was jazz, the genre that dominated his three most recent albums.

His death came weeks before the release of his first rock album in eight years.

Mess of Blues is slated for a North American release on April 22.

Much of Healey's commercial success came as the frontman for the Jeff Healey Band, a Juno-winning act that achieved platinum record sales in the United States with the 1988 record See the Light.

Despite deteriorating record sales in the 1990's, Healey kept busy with radio shows on the CBC and a local Toronto jazz station where he spun long-forgotten classics from his personal collection of more than 30,000 vinyl records.

The Grammy-nominated musician is survived by his wife Christie and two children.

Wow! Shocked I didn't even know the guy had cancer. That's sad. He was truly a very good musician.

I've had the privilege of seeing him play live, from about ten feet away. The guy was truly amazing.

We have lost one of the top guitar players of all time.

RIP, Jeff.........

Thank you for the links, Pastor Frank! Just spend some time watching the really great title together with SRV...
Jeff already appeared in my first guitar lesson book which I got in 1992...

Snipped from Harmony Central:

Jeff and I were playing in New Orleans back in about 86 and we were walking down a street and I took him (unknown to him at that moment) into a porno theatre. He’s saying to me “where are we going?” and I’m saying “I just want to go in here for a minute, come on” and I’ve got him by the arm. I pay for us quickly and we go in and in an instant he says “Hey this is a porno theatre”. MAN did we laugh !!!! We sat in the darkness for over an hour while I’m explaining to him whats happening. LOL
I was playing with Jeff at another club here in Toronto (called Hunters) and we had just come off stage and some dude comes up (again this is before he did his first album and got famous) and starts saying “Man, you think your so good, my cousin blows you away ! – YOU SUCK” and on and on. Jeff, had a pretty healthy ego, but this time, oddly, he;s not saying anything, just listening to the guy insult him but he’s slowly moving his head back and forth (like indicating “no” with his head). Then at the last moment, I realilized what he was doing….he’s trying to figure out EXACTLY where the guy is standing. All of a sudden, he nails the guy dead center in his face !!! The guy went flying backwards and knocked over a table ! The bouncers came running over before the guy got up, and grabbed him and threw him out! LOL !!!!
Imagine the ego crush of getting beat-up by a blind guy ! LOL
Yes, lots of funny memories of Jeff. A real shame.
