Sadly another Blues man has left the building. On March 2, 2008 Jeff Healey died of cancer at St. Joseph’s Health Centre in his home town of Toronto at the age of 41. His death came a month before the release of his new album, Mess of Blues, which would have been his first rock album in eight years. Healey leaves behind his wife, Cristie, 13-year-old daughter Rachel and three-year-old son Derek.
We will miss him deeply.
This is a live performance by the Jeff Healey band on late night BBC in 1989, singing the rather wonderful ballad Angel Eyes off his “See the light” album
