Jeff Healey

Watching him play always made me think he played guitar the way it was meant to be played.

An awesome talent has left…

Awwwwwww, man… that is really sad.

At least I had a chance to see him live a few years back. Brilliant, if not a little strange, to watch.

SHOCK !!

Man… what a bummer. Incredible musician and by all accounts I have read/heard just a super nice human being.

R.I.P. Jeff.

I have a Ronnie Hawkins 60th Birthday Party DVD of some of the Boys playing tribute to Ronnie…
The stage was jammed with all the R&B names Up-and-Down North America…
Jeff Told his GUITAR STORY AND Made it SING…
to the STAGE…
Jerry Lee Lewis told the Audience that He wouldn’t be playing anymore unless Jeff played on his Stage…
Levon Helmes
(THE Drummer) was there with his Stage/Musicians…
Carl Perkins and his Sons played on that stage… (Carl Is gone now)…

The DVD is titled Let It Rock
The 60th Birthday…
If you can find the DVD,
try your best to pick up a copy of it…
It will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up…
Jeff Healey came Out-Front and played his lines…
It was all done live for you to see-and-hear…
It was recorded at Massey Hall in Toronto…
I saw the credits but I don’t remember the Date it was recorded… …
Sorry…
The audio on that DVD is Stellar…

Google

Let It Rock (The 60th Birthday Party)

See what comes up…
The best place to look for it is,

the public Library…
If I remember, that’s where I found it…

I’m Back Again:

O.K.

I found a link…

Eyup!

Sadly, I never got to see him live.
Another unique Canadian talent gone.

I had the pleasure of seeing Jeff in concert twice, awesome performer. HIs tone, his feel, his chops, his voice, all very seasoned, even on his first album, which he was quite young actually.

Sad indeed. And apparently he had just finished up his latest cd, the first blues rock album in about 8 years. I guess we have that to look forward too. But I would have loved to hear him play “WHile my guitar gently Weeps” one more time in concert.

A truly amazing musician and guitarist. One of my idols. He will be missed.
