Great band, great guitarist. God indeed has a new angel in Heaven. RIP Jeff Healey & may He be at yours & your family's side forever. The song "I think I love you too much" is apropos. Great song as well.

I'm a musician. A bass player. One night about 13 or so years ago while playing at the "Cat and Fiddle" in Hollywood, California, Jeff Healy happened to come in. He sat in with us that night and of course played his ass off. He was a warm and friendly guy to boot. I'll always remember that night. I was saddened to hear of his passing today. My heartfelt wishes go out to his family and friends. He was remarkable. He will be missed.
