Dalton: You play pretty good for a blind white boy
Healey: Yeah? and I thought you'd be bigger.

I remember after buying his "See the light"(?) album years ago, a few responses from guitar buddies when they found out about his "uniqueness".

1: He's what?
2: What do you mean on his lap?
3: You are kidding aren't you?

Jeff, you will be sadly missed and my thoughts are with your wife and kids.

R.I.P.

I remember Jeff Healy appearing in the movie "Road House" with Patrick Sawyze. Great movie by the way...RIP Jeff

Imagine the jams with Jeff, Jimi and Stevie in the heavens. Monumental to think about
