Almost four years ago, we lost the great guitarist and singer, Jeff Healey.  Although Healey, had a relatively short music career, passing away at 41 years old, his music lives on in all of us.  Healey was a powerhouse on stage that didn’t let his disabilities get in the way of his guitar.  I want to share a series of video performances that I collected with you to remember what a great musician Healey was.  I hope you enjoy them!

It wouldn’t be right to write a post about Jeff Healey and not include a great version of the hit song, “Roadhouse Blues.”  Check out this live performance from 1989 at

Jeff could slow things down and play a great ballad too.  Check out this performance of the song, “Angel Eyes” at

I’ll leave you with one last video from Healey.  This last one is Healey’s first video appearance and features him playing alongside the great Stevie Ray Vaughan.  Check out this great video at

I hope you enjoyed these videos as much as I did.  Jeff Healey was a guitar virtuoso that will definitely be missed.

      Jeff was awesome! His riff from ‘Full Circle’ was pretty much co-opted as MTV’s old theme as well. Great musician.

      Oh the good they die young. Jeff Healey a few years ago and more recentley, Gary Moore. Both were powerhouse musicians with talent on loan from God.

      He was also a great guy.The record companys were wanting him to leave his band behind but he always stayed with his two band mates.
