Jeff Healey died on Sunday
I just read [livejournal.com profile] vyvyan's post which made me really sad. I saw him live twice in the early 90s, he was absolutely amazing. There was a chair in the centre of the stage and he would come on, walk towards the chair unaided, sit down, start playing, get up, jump and run around the stage, sit down again, never missing a beat or step, despite being blind...
Apparently, he did a lot of jazz recently which is probably why he disappeared from my radar. Must get the new album and some of his back catalogue, as "Hell to Pay" is on some tape somewhere...
