Jeff Healey is remembered as one of the most outstanding guitarists and all-around musicians of the past 30 years. Jeff lost his sight during early childhood due to retinoblastoma, a rare form of eye cancer. Playing guitar since the age of 3, he developed the distinctive lap-style guitar technique that helped bring him international attention by his late teens. A Grammy nominee and JUNO Award winner, Jeff’s five album releases with The Jeff Healey Band totaled millions of sales worldwide. Over the course of Jeff Healey’s career, he also shared stages and earned the admiration of countless other musicians including; B.B. King, Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones, George Harrison, Stevie Ray Vaughan and the Allman Brothers Band. Jeff Healey died on March 2, 2008 at 41 years old after a three-year battle with sarcoma cancer.
