Jeff Healey RIP. Come on, what is wrong with the world. James Blunt is still walking the earth a free man and yet Jeff Healey is taken from us at the age of just 41. In this month's Classic Rock I saw the advert for Jeff's one off show in London and thought I would go for that, I go to get tickets only to be confronted with the headline about his passing. This is so unfair, the man was a brilliant guitarist and even at the height of my hair metal mayhem I recognised his genius when I first heard his début album. In fact at the time I think it was the only album by a new artist I bought that year who didn't back-comb their hair and refer to everyone as either a 'dude' or a 'chick'.
A really sad day. God Bless You Jeff.
We will be bringing forward our planned release of a Jeff Healey T-shirt. We had planned it for later this year, but it seems fitting to bring it out as soon as possible.
