1. He was the highlight of the movie Roadhouse. He was so talented.

2. Crackscape - go fall back in to your crack and disappear. Weirdo.

I remember the first time I saw Jeff perform "Angel Eyes". He made a lasting impression as a real artist and I think of that performance when I hear the song played now, which isn't often enough. I didn't know he was sick.

R.I.P Jeff Healey.

A very talented musician. I had no idea he had been sick with cancer since he was a child.

One of the best guitarist. Right up there with Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page. He was so talented. His music will live on and on. Thanks for leaving us beautiful music to listen to Jeff. You will be missed! Go sing with the angels and teach them a thing or two about the blues!!!!

Oh, yeah, Roadhouse, that was great movie, I thought that Jeff Beck was the blind guy, I get them confused.
