Welcome dear friends.
It is hard to believe that six years ago today we bid farewell to Jeff Healey. On that day we lost a dear friend, brother, son, father, husband, band mate, colleague and unquestionable talent.
In Jeff’s short 41 years he touched countless lives with his music and spirit and he continues to do so to this day.
We wanted to take a moment to mark this sad anniversary and to thank all of you for joining us on this journey of remembrance. In celebrating Jeff’s life, you help us to keep his memory and legacy vital and alive.
In addition to the thousands of you who have registered here on the site, Jeff’s official Facebook page is booming. A testament to the impact Jeff has had, we recently passed 55,000 ‘likes’ and 200 to 300 new fans are joining the page daily.
And thanks to folks like you, we are constantly discovering new chronicles of Jeff’s public life, adding fresh pages to the story. It gives us great joy to be able to share these with you…
One such recently unearthed gem comes to us courtesy of Mike Nile. This is Jeff performing at Mick Fleetwood’s (Fleetwood Mac) wedding in the late 1980’s. Here’s Mike’s description:
“Ian Whitcomb performs his 1965 top ten hit “You Turn Me On” with Mick Fleetwood on drums, Jeff Healey on guitar, and the L.A. Philharmonic Players. This is from Mick and Sara Fleetwood’s wedding in Malibu, California with a little help from wedding dancers Ken Caillat (Fleetwood Mac producer), and Chubby Checker dancing a mean twist. Intro by Dick Clark and myself.”
This was a joyous occasion for Jeff. He was thrilled to be jamming and sharing a stage with these music legends just as his own star was beginning to ascend. Enjoy…
Be good to each other folks. We’ll see you real soon.
Cristie Healey & Roger Costa
