Good morning friends. Today is March 2nd, the anniversary of Jeff Healey’s passing. Just like that, another year flies by. Fourteen years gone in a heartbeat…
Time is a funny thing. There are days it feels like Jeff has been gone forever. Yet some times, I gotta say it feels like he was with us only yesterday and I have to resist the urge to pick up the phone and dial his number.
While Jeff may be gone, he is never forgotten. Year after year, we are reminded of this, not just in our own lives but through the constant support and love shown by you, the fans.
A while back we thanked you all for being so patient with us over the past few years. We have been working away behind the scenes on some amazing long game projects, but we can’t quite tell you about anything… yet. Later this year though, I promise, we will have a very big announcement to share with you. We feel it will definitely be worth the wait.
Meantime, in the next little while our dear friend Greg Godovitz (Goddo et al) will have a very cool, very timely announcement for us to share with you here. For now however, just a little more patience…
And tonight if you have a moment, please raise a glass of your preferred beverage, fire up your favourite Jeff Healey CD, LP, YouTube video, Spotify Playlist, etc… and remember. I think Jeff would’ve liked that.
Finally, to all our friends, and to Jeff’s many fans across the Ukraine, please stay safe folks. Our thoughts are with you…
Is it really 14 years.
Just think of all the music Jeff could have composed had he still been with us.
Still miss him.
It is so crazy. I miss him and his music. He passed just before my daughter was born. My daughter and I, listen to his music every week. He has inspired a young female vocalist.
Wow! time has flown, that picture above shows the Strat I picked out for Jeff, back in 86″. When I told him I had a 82′ Squire and he tried it he said find me one! he loved it, and in 85′ I did. He over time had a few other Strat’s with Evans pickups in them. I use to make him trem bars, as he use to go nuts on them and break them, stomping on them. I use to jam with him at Branko’s on Bloor, when he had an open jam there.
I still miss this guy as if was yesterday.Your music keeps this OLE Jock a happy Man.R.I.P Jeff.
I miss him a lot ! But His music always give me the smile and shine my day.
I will never forget Jeff Healey as he will forever be an inspiration for me as he is for millions of others. That’s not just as a guitarist but in all of our lives as a person who overcame disabilities none of us ever could have. He proved to the world how his deepest heartfelt passion and soulful inspiration touched many millions of others like no other person had before, or has since.
I’ll always remember being front row at the house of blues in Vegas and watching Jeff play 10ft directly in front of me. What a night.
I just watched Jeff’s “See the Light” rendition on “Night Music” on youtube.
Unbelievable. Greatest thing I’ve ever seen.
I sent the link to all my buddies and kids.
Wow, better late than never. I had always loved the song Angel eyes, but because of my hearing loss, I never heard his name. (I do have some hearing in my left ear). My Rodger passed away almost 2 years ago; he loved music. so, when I get on F/B I listen to music first. Then I saw the song, Jeff’s song, I started playing it every day along with a few others of his. I was saddened to read on his link that he passed away 3/2/08, in 4 days it will be 15 years. RIP Jeff, you were a beautiful man, singer, guitar player and soul.
