I saw Jeff Healy on my TV just a minute ago, this is the sickest thing I've ever seen. He is blind and have a really cool and weird style, I dont get how he can play that way. Seriously, check this out:

Jeff Healey has been around since the late 80's. He's a big name here in Canada (since he is Canadian) but he's been relativley quite the last few years although he's released albums like every couple years. He had a huge hit with the ballad "Angel Eyes" in like '88 I think it was but does some really cool blues rock and he's done a bit of Jazz work too I believe. He's also in the movie Road House. He had cancer of the eye which made him go blind. Just a bit of info on him if any one was interested.
