Just saw on the news that Jeff Healey has died. He was a fantastic guitarist and just generally a cool guy. I saw him perform in Kingston, just after he released his debut album but before the awards. His My Kind of Jazz program on CBC was a favorite, too. Wikipedia has a good summary.

Another sad story of a life over too soon.

I remember when my little brother brought home the single of "See the Light" (anyone remember 3.5 inch CD singles?) It was clear from the start that he was a serious talent.
