Wikipedia : This day (March 2, 2008), in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, died Norman Jeffrey ‘Jeff’ Healey, a blind Canadian jazz and blues-rock vocalist and guitarist.

Official Site : The man who sold millions of hard blues/rock recordings is equally at ease, and always enthusiastic, playing the infectious, joyful pop music of the ’20s and ’30s that’s usually described as “traditional” or classic jazz.

@allmusic : With the guitar in his lap, Healey could make unique bends and hammer-ons, making his licks different and more elastic than most of the competition. Unfortunately, his material leaned toward standard AOR blues-rock, which rarely let him cut loose, but when he did, his instrumental prowess could be shocking.

@last.fm : Jeff Healey (born Norman Jeffrey Healey on March 25, 1966 in Toronto, Canada – died March 2, 2008) was a blind Canadian blues-rock guitarist. Healey was perhaps most notable for his innovative playing style, with his guitar lying flat on his lap.

@Discogs : Healey lost his eyesight due to cancer when he was only one year old. He taught himself to play the guitar, and later how to play the trumpet.
