Jeff Healy, March 25, 1966 – March 2, 2008

Blues guitarist Jeff Healy has died of cancer. He battled the disease literally his entire life, and it robbed him of his sight at the tender age of eight months. He started playing guitar as a toddler, laying the instrument across his lap, and he mastered it beautifully, providing millions of people with hours and hours of enjoyment, me among them, and I am very grateful for that.

Everyone and their dog will post Angel Eyes today - so I am going a different direction...

Thanks for the music, Jeff. You're gone, but you left a rich legacy, and it lives on.
