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.
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.
I'm not a big fan of Radiohead except for a few songs off of OK Computer. However, this is an awesome move, and I downloaded the album in exchange for a $10 donation anyway. I have yet to listen to it, so I can't say if it's good or not.
