Well that's too bad. I really enjoyed his version of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" and "I Tried".

Rest In Peace.

Holy shit...this is such a shock to me.

I have great memories of attending his outdoor concert in Barrie, Ontario on New Years Eve a number of years ago; he was very spirited and a lot of fun to watch. Best part was watching a great number of couples start slow dancing when he started ANGEL EYES.

Thanks for the memories, Jeff. I know you'll love what Heaven looks like.

Mahou henshin! Magi magi magi...magiro!

Man, what a shame, I always loved his music. Not to mention, his classic performance in Road House.

Please, please, if you are going to give the man his place, be kind enough to spell it right. Jeff Healey

A very, very sad day for music. He was a class act and a lot of fun. From his rock days, man what a performer he was, to his Blues/Jazz albums and radio show in Toronto, this man was a great!

I feel very much like I did the day I heard Stevie Ray Vaughan had died. Disappointed that I won't ever hear new music from him and sad for the loss of a great man.

I was so looking forward to a new record, which is to be released in about a month from now. He was going to tour for the album too. What a shame.

I suspect the Juno award organizers will be scrambling now to ensure he is properly honoured at this years show, April 6th.

RIP Jeff, you will be greatly missed!

There's a World Container with your name on it, and a billion ways to go bezerk!!

I only once ever had the opportunity to see Jeff Healey perform live. I was visiting Toronto in 1999. I went there to go visit a friend, but coincidentally, there were a bunch of great concerts that week. There was a free day-long festival featuring Jeff Healey, Kim Stockwood, Moxy Früvous, Emm Gryner, Tal Bachman, David Wilcox, and Moist. I was only familiar with Healey's radio singles, which really hadn't ever done anything for me. In person, though, it was an entirely different story. He was incredibly talented and in a live setting, that really came through. I was amazed at how much I enjoyed his performance. A definite highlight of the day for me.

To be fair, if you check the URL that BOSsportsfan34 posted, it looks like the article originally spelled "Healey" incorrectly as well. I think the National Post corrected the article (and redirected the URL) after the first post was made.
