All you fellows, you can look all you like

Canadian blind rock artist Jeff Healey passed away of a rare form of cancer which he has battled since birth. He was 41.

I'll admit that I haven't really heard of him before. His big hit was the 1988 album "See The Light" with the hit single being Angel Eyes. Upon listen you'll recognize it.

His first album in 8 years, Mess of Blues, is set to be released this month in North America.

What was truly interesting about Jeff Healey was the way he played guitar - across his lap. See his rendition of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps":

Wait - you've never seen "Road House"? It's a classic!
