Jeff Healey 1966-2008

I’m stunned after learning from SuzeMuse’s blog that Jeff Healey has passed away. If you were at all into rock or blues in Canada in the late 80’s, you knew and appreciated his talent.

I remember being introduced to him in two phases, first a friend said “you gotta hear him” and played me the awesome title track from “See the Light”, then after picking up my jaw off the floor he said “you’ve gotta SEE him” .. True, his style was unique, and some people couldn’t get past his playing method, but when you closed your eyes and just listened, you knew you were hearing a great talent..

Godspeed Jeff, and our prayers and thoughts to your family,

    Wow, I am in shock. This really saddens me. He played during my frosh week at WLU in the late 80’s. I was lucky enough to meet him and hang out with him for a few hours. He was too young to die. My thoughts are with his family.
