Don't know how many people here know who he is but Jeff Healey was a blind guitarist from Canada. He had a role in the movie Roadhouse as the guitarist of the house band. He died sunday at the age of 41 from cancer. He had a very interesting way of playing the guitar with it flat on his lap.

Sad. I never heard of him but my Father died of Cancer at the age of 42. ( I was 11 years old at the time & believe me, a death at such a young age will change the course of Healey's entire family for the rest of their lives) :(

words to live by!


Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in one pretty well preserved piece,but to skid across the line broadside, thoroughly used up, worn out,leaking oil,
Shouting GERONIMO!

Yeah I liked Jeff's music alot. Being from WNY we get to hear quite a bit of his stuff because Canada is so close.
