Jeff Healey (March 25th 1966 - March 2nd 2008)
I just got very sad word through a 680news breaking alert that the Juno award-winning Toronto blues-rock great Jeff Healey has lost his long battle with cancer and died in his home at the age of 41.
Blind since he was just 1-year old, he began playing guitar as a toddler and honed his skills with his signature guitar-on-the-lap style. Healey, the heart of the highly-acclaimed Jeff Healey Band, also ran the popular Toronto jazz/rock/blues bar Jeff Healey's Roadhouse.
Jeff Healey, his raw talent, and his dedication to and support for the Canadian jazz and blues-rock scenes will be greatly missed.
