Re: Jeff Healey - Blind singer from Roadhouse

I met Jeff in the late 90s when his band opened for the Allman Bros. I was lucky. We hung out back stage before the show, Jeff his band, me and some friends. We drank and smoked and laughed. I came away thinking these are the nicest people ever. He was a lot of fun and will be missed. I never post on these things, but Jeff was a good dude and people should know.

Re: Jeff Healey - Blind singer from Roadhouse

Wow, very cool. Thank you for sharing it. Jeff did seem like a nice guy. PS. Allman Brothers is one of my favorite bands (along with Skynyrd)

Re: Jeff Healey - Blind singer from Roadhouse

I remember the song "Angel Eyes", but I never knew the guy singing it was blind. I liked the song. I remember it playing on the radio when I was dating my first girlfriend. It brought back good memories when I heard it again.

Re: Jeff Healey - Blind singer from Roadhouse

So sad - he was so young! He is sorely missed. I remember my boyfriend at the time used to sing the song "Angel Eyes" to me when that was a hit in the 80s. Healey was an awesome musician.

Re: Jeff Healey - Blind singer from Roadhouse

When Jeff's albums are purchased, who do the royalites go to? Family?

Re: Jeff Healey - Blind singer from Roadhouse

I'm pretty sure that he assigned his favorite people to receive profit. He knew he was in bad health. So, he must have taken care of that.
