Had the chance to meet him several times and see him play.

Nice, nice guy - a rare talent as well.

He'll be missed on the Cdn jazz and blues/rock scene.

R.I.P.

On a related side note, when my youngest (7) first started playing Guitar Hero, he would play with the guitar on his lap, just like Jeff Healey. The first time I saw it, I thought of Jeff, whom I hadn't thought of in quite some years.

Jeff had just completed work on a new album "Mess of Blues" (first one in about 8 years), which should be coming out next month.
