Canadian rocker Jeff Healy dies of cancer

Blind Canadian rocker Jeff Healy, (R) with wife Christie, has died of cancer


OTTAWA (AFP) — Blind Canadian rocker Jeff Healy, who uniquely played his guitar flat on his lap, died of cancer Sunday on the eve of his latest album release, his publicist said in a statement.

Healy, 41, died in a Toronto hospital of a rare cancer, retino blastoma, that he had fought since birth and which claimed his eyesight at the age of one.

"Visually, Jeff was an intriguing player to watch, because he played guitar -- by any conventional standard -- all wrong, with it flat across his lap," his publicist Richard Flohil told broadcaster CTV. "But he was a remarkable, a virtuoso player."

The Jeff Healy Band's 1988 Grammy-nominated album "See the Light," which included the hit "Angle Eyes," sold more than one million copies in the United States.

He played with blues legends B.B. King and Stevie Ray Vaughn, and recorded with George Harrison, Mark Knopfler, and the late Jimmy Rogers.

At the time of his death, he was about to release his first rock-blues album in eight years, "Mess of Blues." The CD will be released in March and April in North America and Europe, respectively.

A tour of Germany and Britain, as well as an appearance on the BBC's Jools Holland Show have been cancelled.

Last year, Healy had surgery to remove the cancer from his legs, and later from both lungs. He also underwent radiation treatment and chemotherapy.

Two things, It is a sad day to hear about Jeff Healey. only 41 years old, he still had so much he could have brought to the world of music. I saw him live once, at a small ranch party up here in the sticks. He was a great entertainer. And I believe he did live life to the fullest while he could. Definitely a kindred spirit.

He has left his mark on the world, I do believe.

Also, completely 'nother topic, but I have to apologize to all the wooshies that aren't enjoying the cold. I have been praying for it to stay until at least the end of March. So, it's going to be around yet.

I'm just got a new pair of downhill skiis and I'm not ready to put them away for the season yet. So you'll all just have to tough it out. :D

Maybe I can find a nice pic of the view from the top of Blue Mountain in Collingwood for you to appreciate?

OH! So it's your fault? Thanks. 8^( At least it was warm today (+11c) and some of the snow melted.

Yes, I will take full credit, but only for ski hills. I can't be held responsible for the snow that's fallen in your driveway, I didn't ask for that.
