March 2nd, 2008, Canadian guitarist, singer, Jeff Healey, died of cancer. Healey lost his sight to retinoblastoma, a rare cancer of the eyes when he was eight months old, resulting in his eyes being surgically removed. After living cancer-free for 38 years, he developed sarcoma in his legs. Despite surgery for this, the sarcoma spread to his lungs and ultimately was the cause of his death.

Healey released over 12 albums, presented a long running radio show and worked with many artists including Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Guy, BB King, ZZ Top, Steve Lukather, Eric Clapton and Ian Gillan.

That was interesting that jeff didnt sing any backing vocals...i was missing his voice. It had a good bar band feel though. I saw jeff healey at nassau community college, where i went to 13th grade...they completely blew up the room with a drop ceiling. Very amazing being close to volume and powerful music like he had.

This college is actually right across a street from nassau coliseum, where led zeppelin and many other rock bands played in the 70s and where i saw page and plant on their solo tours in 88.
